Who We Are

The Institute, formerly called Centru Bambu, was established in 2008 by UNIDO in collaboration with the Timor-Leste government to promote the importance of bamboo products in Timor-Leste. Subsequent to the roll-out of the Timor-Leste 2011-2030 National Strategic Development Plan, it was re-named Instituto Do Bambu (IPDFPB -Institute of Research, Development, Formation and Promotion of Bamboo) in December 2014 to recognize its expanded role. The products range from office tables to flower vases, with a wide assortment in between. To view more detailed contact or product information, visit CBTL's profile on Peace Dividend Trust's online procurement database.

Our Objective:

  • To promote the development of a sustainable bamboo industry in Timor-Leste.
  • To support key development objectives of Timor-Leste, namely, post crisis development; poverty alleviation; higher employment, and income generation, in particular, in rural and marginalized areas.
  • To increase number of bamboo plantations in Timor-Leste.
  • To contribute to expanding the manufacturing base of the country by turning bamboo, instead of wood, into a cash crop. This value-added activity will help to improve the economy of the country.
  • To meet the goals of sustainable utilization of natural resources and environmental conservation in Timor-Leste.
