Doubling Down on Inclusive Green Growth with Phase II of the Sino-Dutch-East Africa Bamboo Development Programme
Keywords:SDGs, bamboo, sustainable development, trilateral cooperation, South–South, East Africa, China
The Sino-Dutch-East Africa Bamboo Development Programme is a trilateral cooperation initiative brokered by the International Bamboo and Rattan Organization (INBAR), which since 2016 has been harnessing Chinese and Dutch financial and technical assistance to kickstart bamboo value chains in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. Given the immense natural resource endowment in the region, and the encouraging achievements of the program’s Phase I, a second phase was recently launched to further assist with the upscaling of the budding bamboo sectors and to further contribute to the simultaneous pursuits of various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—ranging from poverty reduction, social inclusion, and responsible production and consumption to climate action, life on land, and affordable clean energy.
