The utilisation of bamboo as a bioenergy source in Africa is still underutilised despite covering 7.2 million hectares of land. This working paper has two main goals; the first one is to provide technical background about the different technologies that can be used to generate bioenergy from bamboo and to present some relevant success stories […]
The aim of this Working Paper is to provide guidelines for private investors on how to effectively plan a bamboo bioenergy project in Africa. The second main objective is to explain to African policymakers why they should consider bamboo bioenergy as an important sustainable development topic and to provide them with guidelines on starting an […]
Understanding the ecosystem services from bamboo forests can increase awareness of their importance to policymakers and local communities. This report reviews existing literature and case studies to provide a clear understanding of the different dimensions of bamboo forest ecosystem services, and the ways in which they can be harnessed. This research was carried out by the […]
This study presents the potential of bamboo for climate change mitigation in Ethiopia. It was carried out by the International Bamboo and Rattan Organisation (INBAR) as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA), and in partnership with the Forest Resources Assessment and Monitoring Directorate of the Environment, Forest and Climate […]
This Working Paper provides an overview of the bioeconomic potential, technology options and opportunities of bamboo for bioenergy production. As such, this report aims to support relevant decision-makers and the bamboo sector stakeholders in their understanding of the potential and challenges of bamboo to meet key requirements towards the development of sustainable bioenergy supply chains. […]
The purpose of this report is to assess the climate change mitigation potential of implementing sustainable forest management in the indigenous bamboo forests in Kenya. It was carried out by the International Bamboo and Rattan Organisation (INBAR) as part of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).
El objetivo del presente estudio es contribuir a la incorporación y uso del bambú en sistemas silvopastoriles en Colombia a partir de un análisis costo-beneficio de los sistemas ganaderos y el desarrollo de lineamientos de política. Esto permitirá una mejor gestión del recurso bambú y del manejo de los sistemas ganaderos buscando siempre la sostenibilidad […]
The report aims to present and summarise the timber regulations applicable in different jurisdictions, analyse their impact on the trade of bamboo and bamboo products, and identify possible opportunities for facilitating the commercialisation of bamboo and its derived products.
