The proposed study is an integral part of the strategic agenda set by INBAR to conduct a series of research on bamboo economy in major production and trade countries through effective collaboration with local research partners. Aiming to give a thorough investigation on the subject of the Chinese bamboo product trade, it will collect and […]
This socioeconomic study of the bamboo sector in Costa Rica. This sector is extremely small, and its development depends on the specific politics that the current governments adopts, particularly in relation to housing which is one of the most viable uses of bamboo in the country.
In this research three discrete factors were explored in order to discover possible approaches to the development of this abundant natural resource. The three factors were: the contribution of advanced technology and improved treatment methods to improve bamboo’s material performance; the appropriate use of human resources through the application of appropriate technology; and the introduction […]
From May 1999 through November 1999, a study of the Abra bamboo production-to-consumption system was carried out. The study covered the 2 systems existing in Abra – one for round poles, and the other for crafts. The results are presented within the body of this report, problems and constraints to the systems are identified and […]
In Uganda, rattan has long been collected from natural forests for domestic use and for trading in local markets, with a small amount exported through unregulated channels. This study examines the production-to-consupmtion systems of sector and makes recommendations for improvement.
Bamboo has been increasing in importance as an NTFP in Tanzania over the last two decades. This study examines the production-to-consumption systems in the country, identifying constraints in the chain, and making recommendations for a better framework.
The bamboo case study was conducted in various parts of the country with the aim of obtaining information on the bamboo production to consumption systems. Data was collected from primary and secondary sources. The data covered aspects such as social and demographic factors of the various local communities, policy and legal issues, stakeholders’ analysis, constraints, […]
The study was principally designed to provide a thorough understanding of the rattan production-to-consumption system in Ghana. It was also to identify constraints in the sector and recommend possible development interventions that will transcend these constraints and ensure sustainable development of the sector to particularly, improve the livelihood of the rural stakeholders in the country. […]
The study seeks to contribute to the sustainable management and use of the bamboo sector in Ethiopia. Its immediate objectives are: 1. To provide a picture of the supply and use patterns of highland and lowland bamboo; 2. To design an appropriate intervention model in support of increased income and employment benefits to those engaged […]
To reflect the importance of rattan as a non-timber forest product (NTFP), this study was commissioned to the Limbe Botanic Garden by INBAR. The major objective was a) to study the Production-to-Consumption System (PCS) of the rattan sector in Cameroon, b) to identify problems faced by various actors and c) to identify development interventions for […]
