The acting director pointed out that the workshop would equally provide capacity development and training programme aimed at addressing current gaps in local policy development, knowledge and skills required to develop industrial value chains.

He said Nigeria became a member of INBAR in 2004 adding that the National Council on Environment approved the constitution and inauguration of the Nigeria Bamboo and Rattan Development Programme (NBARDEP).

He identified some of the constraints in the development of bamboo and rattan in Nigeria as lack of government policy and legislation, coordination of local and national administrative levels as well as poor funding.
