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 discussed, and recommendations are outlined for development interventions in the bamboo industry with the goal of improving the lives of the people of Abra through increased income generation.
