About this book

Language: English

An International Workshop on Bamboo and Rattan was jointly carried out by the two provinces in April 12-22, 2000 in Haikou (Hainan) and Kunming (Yunnan), the workshop organizers, the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) and the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR). It aimed at promoting bamboo and rattan in both provinces, where its cultivation and processing, marketing and consumption seemed to be lagging behind the development in general. Much better exemples can easily be observed in the so-called Bamboo Provinces of China. This is puzzling because Hainan Province especially, has rich potentials in terms of number of native species, sites for cultivation and people familiar with the handing of both species. Yet these species seem for some reasons to be under-used and even neglected. The workshop was therefore intended to be a kick-off for a renaissance of bamboo and rattan and their many fields of cultivation and utilization.
