2019-2030 Ethiopian bamboo development strategy and action plan

Bamboo and bamboo products hold significant potential to contribute to the sustainable development of Ethiopia, specifically for building green economy. Ethiopia is the primary grower of bamboo in Africa but still far from effective and efficient use of these resources. This strategy and action plan adopted by the EFCCC ( Ethiopian Environment, Forest and Climate Change Commission) is the first step in the right direction to increase and add value to current bamboo development, sustainable management and utilization efforts. Through the introduction of this comprehensive strategy and action plan, it is envisaged that by the end of 2030, Ethiopia will become the leading high value bamboo producer and supplier in Africa.
