This report’s objective is to implement live cycle analyses (LCA) for selected bamboo-based products from cradle to gate in Viet Nam to unlock bamboo’s potential as a key resource against climate change. It analyses material flows, carbon emissions and storage in bamboo-based production. The results will contribute to policy development by providing policy options for emission reduction and climate change resilience in Viet Nam.

This research was carried out by the International Bamboo and Rattan Organisation (INBAR) as part of the project of Production-driven Forest Landscape Restoration under REDD+ through Private Sector-Community Partnerships as an Asian Regional Learning Exchange (FLOURISH).
