  3. Bamboo was once a god gifted blessing for the poor.
    Development of civilization has helped people living better but not the poor. Development of science and civilization has led to wide scale urbanization at the cost of natural resources particularly the wood land. As a result, the poor once had the free access to bamboos- a resource that could meet their bare necessities of life- food and shelter. Now a days Bamboo is no more easily available. It has its use manifold with high status-a valuable resource for higher society.

  4. Thanks for your comment. Certainly bamboo forests owned by bamboo-related businesses cannot be sources of bamboo for the poor. But the stuff grows like a weed, at least where I live. Hopefully poor communities have land where they can grow it for their own use. Many NGOs exist for the purpose of helping the poor You have raised an issue they should keep in mind.

  6. You have made some good points there. I checked on the net for more info about the issue
    and found most individuals will go along with your views on this site.

  7. I understand that economic status of bamboo has reached climax because of its sophisticated use at the high up society. It is learned that bamboos are being widely used as better textile fibre and as in door wood. Therefore access of the poor to bamboo is becoming hard now a days excepting some inaccessible areas.

  8. David Guion. your remarks is not based upon updated information. What input I have given here holds good. The use of bamboo in the world market is gradually going up and gaining high status.It is becoming more and more costly and going beyond purchasing capacity of the many poor. I understand you are not aware of a German project in Ethiopia., If You you are really interested, you give me your clear reason, I will let you know the bamboo status.
