Market Development of Bamboo and Rattan Products with Potential



The overall objective of the project administered by the International Network on Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR) is to improve the quality, durability, market opportunities and resource base of bamboo and rattan commodities and their sustainable development in Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar. The project will achieve this by assisting bamboo and rattan producers, craftsman and traders for resources base development, design improvement, value addition and market promotion. The project will contribute to poverty alleviation by generating additional income to rural communities and providing employment in processing facilities. The project has three components to achieve the desired objective:
  1. To develop and introduce rehabilitation and certification systems of bamboo and rattan resources
