Unlike trees, this highly versatile grass doesn't need to be replanted - in fact, it replenishes itself for harvesting within three to five years. And it's strong too. Its strength to weight ratio is higher than graphite. With careful management, yields can be further increased - though according to Beichuan forestry official Zhou Jin (PRONOUNCED joe jee), the locals here usually just let the bamboo fend for itself. "In Beichuan, farmers in the forests like to grow bamboo, but they pay little attention to looking after it. They just let it grow unattended. They don't heed any technical information about growing bamboo," he says. In B...

If it's managed well and taken care of while its growing in theory, one day, experts believe we could earn almost two million USD per year. It's a great plant because you can harvest it after its first two or three years of growth and then again, every single year. It grows so fast." Nr Addis Ababa - recent 8.

SOUNDBITE: (Amharic) Adane Berhe, General Manager Adal Industrial "We've already signed an agreement with Kenya and Canada to sell bamboo and our target is to try to sell it to other countries in Africa, in particular our neighbours. Also, we know that South Africa and Egypt buy bamboo flooring from China, so we want to target those two countries as well because they are closer to us and their freight costs will be lower if they buy from Ethiopia - so we hope we will be more attractive." 11. Various exterior UNIDO 12. Various Aurelia Calabro, Deputy Representative, UNIDO 13. SOUNDBITE: (English) Aurelia Calabro, Deputy Representative, UNIDO "People like Adal are exporting the floors to Canada and I think that there'll be more and more people entering the business and let it become an important export earner for Ethiopia, like coffee, leather, cotton, textiles." Addis Ababa - recent 14. Various bamboo furniture at house LEAD IN : Bamboo is a fast growing plant, often used for furniture and even cooking in Asia. Ethiopia has the largest amount of bamboo in Africa, and local people use it to build homes and utensils. But now the trend for bamboo furniture and flooring is enabling Ethiopian farmers to profit from this fast growing crop. STORYLINE : Tadesse Futa has a small farm in the village of Aleta Wondo, nearly 350 kilometres (217 miles) south of the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa, he grows barley, vegetables and enset ('false banana'). He used the wild bamboo that grew on his land to construct pretty much everything he needed from his mud hut, fencing, furniture, baskets or beehives. But now he has begun to grow bamboo as a commercial crop. Last year the Ethiopian Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Agriculture joined forces with the United Nations Industrial Development Agency (UNIDO) to launch a pilot project to teach farmers how to better utilise bamboo. The $2.5 million USD 'Eastern Africa Bamboo Project' (which includes Kenya and Ethiopia) focuses on three pilot villages. Tadesse and 149 other farmers were given training in how to maximise usage of this versatile grass crop by improving its growth and quality and making more profitable products out of it. There are around 2,500 species of bamboo in the world, 40 of which are in Africa and two in Ethiopia.

In 2009, they transplanted live Moso bamboo plants to Oregon from Louisiana. In early 2011, another trip was made adding to the current stock, now growing in Albany, Oregon. Over the past two years, Bamboo Revolution and Bamboo Valley built a relationship with Andy Ringle of Avery Island, La., home of Tabasco® pepper sauce.

McIlhenny, in cooperation with the USDA, this grove represented, at the time, an initial step toward the establishment of a bamboo industry in this country. However, with McIlhenny's death in 1949 this potential remained largely unrealized, and many of the bamboo groves that McIlhenny planted on Avery Island were left unmanaged and fell into neglect. In October 2009, 10 Bamboo Revolution employees and Dain Sansome of Bamboo Valley traveled to Louisiana to help restore the bamboo groves. In return, they received permission to transplant live plants to Bamboo Revolution's cooperative farm with Bamboo Valley, an established bamboo farm in Albany, Ore. Bamboo can be harvested after just four to six years of growth, whereas comparable wood species take 30-60 years to reach harvestable maturity. The harvested material is manufactured into panels, veneer, flooring, countertops, and other building materials. Developing a bamboo industry within the United States will reduce the distance the materials are transported, sequester carbon, and create jobs for industries and communities hit hard by the changing economy.

They don't heed any technical information about growing bamboo," he says. In Beichuan, where bamboo provides livelihoods for 6,000 people, there's also been scant interest in producing goods, locally, from their natural resource. As a substitute for timber, bamboo is used for paper making, fencing, furniture, building homes, even clothes including lingerie. It's valuable - and eco-friendly, but times are changing. The European Union is funding INBAR (the International Network of Bamboo and Rattan) to help boost production of bamboo by sustainably growing yields in the forests and developing rural factories that make bamboo goods. "Beichuan didn't have any bamboo manufacturing at all before. We only sold it. If someone came, they sold it, if no one came to buy, they just let it grow," says Zhou Jin. The efforts are aimed at boosting rural economies that were devastated by the massive 2008 earthquake. INBAR's US$ 2.5million advisory project focuses on eight townships across Sichuan (PRONOUNCED sitch-wan), including here in Beichuan. It also promotes more effective marketing, greater use of bamboo in construction and safer factory working conditions. This factory, supported by Citibank's Foundation and the EU programme, began making bamboo sheets in October 2009. It's a fairly primitive operation, with 16 employees, that focuses on low value products. But it's the only bamboo manufacturer in this county. The factory set-up costs amounted to US$ 27,000. In 2010, it sold 50,000 (2 metre x 1 metre) sheets at just over US $1.50 each. Profit, after paying for the bamboo and wages was 60%. Customers come from north-west China - Qinghai, Gansu and Ningxia - where they use the matting for sun-drying dates, ginseng and herbs. It may be basic here, but INBAR hopes it will inspire other entrepreneurs to establish bamboo production centres, especially those that focus on building materials. "With the help of the Citi Foundation and INBAR, what we're producing now is at the lower level of the industry. But I'm starting to make other products - it will grow slowly," says general manager, Zhou Xu. Bamboo has been used in construction for thousands of years. In Sichuan, however, most bamboo dwellings have been replaced by concrete, steel and brick - though so much of that collapsed during the Sichuan earthquake. The EU funded programme seeks to promote bamboo in building - especially in areas that suffer natural disasters like Sichuan. But the deputy chief of the Sichuan Forestry Technology Advisory Bureau, Long Xiaoxiong (PRONOUNCED long shee-aow shee-ong) says the industry first needs to get through the red tape and satisfy the authorities that are responsible for construction standards. "There are construction standards to build houses with steel and concrete. But to build bamboo homes we don't have standards from the construction departments. So, what kind of bamboo house should we build, what standard should we reach?" His colleague at the Beichuan bureau, Zhou Jin also has reservations.
