The overall goal of INBAR’s Action Research Site programme in Bule village, Awassa, South Nations Nationalities and Peoples Regional State, Ethiopia is to develop rural community micro and small enterprises that utilise local bamboo resources  for livelihood development. As the programme is still in the development phase, the main objectives have been to a) raise stakeholder awareness of the economic and livelihood potential of local bamboo resources, b) build general capacity of rural communities to manage, harvest, process and produce bamboo products, c) Improve local community market and value chain knowledge, d) establish a national institution dedicated to bamboo sector development, and e) promote bamboo as a tool for socio-economic development among Government and policy-making stakeholders.
