Abstract

Bamboo is a renewable resource that has many economic and environmental benefits. Because of its potential contribution to sustainable development, private companies and governments have begun to promote its commercialisation across Africa. A recent study led by HSRC researchers examined the opportunities and challenges of commercialising bamboo in South Africa.
