The Socio-economics and Policy Programme of INBAR was guided by a Working Group made up of senior social and natural scientists from government agencies and universities in Asia. The Group worked in coordination with Mr. Brian Belcher, then
principal economist of INBAR, to set the research priorities and plans for the programme. For the initial phase, the program focus was on a set of socio-economic database studies and case studies, which were carried out during 1994-96. These five database
studies and 11 production-to-consumption systems case studies on bamboo and rattan sectors yielded much important socio-economic data for INBAR. These studies also brought to light serious information gaps that exist in this area, an aspect that has
since then helped INBAR program its activities much more effectively. This Working Paper provides an overview and synthesis of the database and case studies, summarising the overall approach these initiatives adopted and compiling their major findings.
