Principle Objectives:

  • To promote growth and sustainable management of bamboo both in natural forests and cultivation under Community based plantation and production models (such as Van Panchayats/ Joint forest management/ongoing atershed projects; social and agro forestry programmes) with concomitant benefits to forest conservation and industrial development.
  • To develop new generation, environment friendly bamboo and fiber based products, processes, practices and technology by giving impetus to innovative design capabilities, testing methodologies, fabrication and standardization techniques with a view towards increased trade in domestic and export markets.
  • To popularize bamboo as a cost-effective and earth-quake resistant building material to meet the housing and other infrastructural needs of the State especially since it lies in a high-seismic zone.
  • To empower and upgrade the skills of grass-roots artisan and farmer groups on various bamboo and fiber production and processing techniques.
  • To develop market driven, market-linked bamboo and natural fiber community- based enterprises and cottage industries so as to clearly focus on providing employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in remote rural areas.
  • To enhance inter-institutional industry interaction in the domestic and international arenas for technology sourcing, absorption and dissemination; while also improving industry-lab-user linkages for collaborative technology development and transfer.
  • To mobilize donor agencies, industrial houses and community-based organizations on the vast potential of bamboo and natural fibers.
