Bio-based materials in developing contexts: changing public perception and fomenting bamboo research and industry partnerships for circular economies
This project investigates the use of bio-based materials in traditional and contemporary architecture, in particular bamboo and its role in fomenting a transition towards circular economies. It argues for a review in resources and implementation strategies that can remove barriers and contribute towards increase in local production, demand and consumption, by promoting added-value design and demonstration projects, comprehensive change towards conflict resolution on land tenure and community led resource management.
