The Sarawak Timber Industry Development Corporation (STIDC) commissioned INBAR to conduct a feasibility assessment of the opportunities for bamboo and its utilisation in Sarawak. This study presents the findings of the assessment. The report also assesses the feasibility of developing carbon credit trading for the proposed plantations as an additional source of financing. Finally, the study provides guidance on enterprise and local market development that can complement the establishment of plantations and guide species selection.
