Cocowood Technologies (ITTO/01)

 

The objective of the project was to promote, maximise and commercialise the utilisation of cocowood as a raw material for the production of housing components, furniture and other higher value-added products. The project was implemented in the Philippines in cooperation with the Forest Products Research and Development Institute (FPRDI). Farmers, small artisans, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders used the feasibility studies of the project to procure equipment, expand the technology investments and generally to increase commercialization of cocowood utilization.
