The translated third edition of this construction manual, first published in 2005, provides a basic, hands-on guide to using bamboo for construction: from choosing and treating the raw material, to putting together durable and safe structures. It draws heavily on experiences from the Andean region of Latin America, where bamboo is a historical construction material. The publication includes photographs and diagrams to illustrate best practices. This publication was co-published with INBAR, the Ministry of Housing Construction and Sanitation of Peru, and the University of San Martín de Porres. The project was carried out with the financial support of the European Union and Common Fund for Commodities.
