The International Bamboo and Rattan Organisation (INBAR) together with the State Forestry Administration of China (SFA) will hold the 1st ever Global Bamboo and Rattan Congress 2018. On 25-27 June 2018, ministers, government officials, scientists, conservationists, educators, and business leaders will come together to address these pressing global issues.


Bamboo and rattan are strategic resources for sustainable development however their full potential has yet to be exploited. INBAR will draw on 20 years of experience to bring together our 43 Member States to promote bamboo and rattan’s role in achieving the global sustainable development agenda. BARC2018 aims to provide a platform for south-south and south-south-north cooperation to shape future policies, build foundations for new partnerships and initiatives.


Under the principle of fairness, equality, openness and transparency, INBAR welcomes you to join us at this momentous event to drive the substantial potentials of bamboo and rattan in enhancing South-South Cooperation, improving Green Development and contributions to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals including climate change mitigation and adaption.
