In 2002, INBAR set up an Action Research Site (ARS) in Tripura, India to develop bamboo processing and production techniques that utilize local resources for the establishment of rural enterprise. Since 2005, the programme has focused primarily on high value-added incense stick production, training poor, marginalized rural women to hand-roll incense paste (masala) onto bamboo sticks to produce raw (unscented) incense sticks called batti. At the local level, the Tripura Bamboo and Cane Development Centre (TRIBAC), an INBAR-established, Indian Section 25 nonprofit company, implement the project. Other project partners include CIBART and Bandhan (both non-governmental organizations), NMBA, NABARD, KVIC and SIDBI (all entities under the Government of India), the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of Tripura, and Jayanti Domestic Products, Oracle Perfumery and Transtar Express Ltd. (all private sector companies).
