Çalışma, Nijerya'nın bambu maddesinin ekonomik ve çevresel faydalarına etkilerini incelemektedir. Çalışma ayrıca tekstil endüstrisi, mobilya endüstrisi, kağıt endüstrisi, dokuma endüstrisi ve çevreye karbon lavabo olarak rolü gibi pek çok alanda bambu ürününün geniş kullanım alanlarını ortaya koymaktadır. Çok amaçlı bir bitki olarak ve ayrıca lifli kök ve toplu gelişme modelinden dolayı, bambu toprak erozyonunu kontrol etme kabiliyetine sahiptir. Çalışma, bambunun bir çok alanda yararlı olduğunu, ancak araştırma, geliştirme ve kullanımda önemli bir yatırım yapılmadığı takdirde çok fazla ilerleme kaydedilmeyeceğini ifade etmektedir. Çalışmada sonuç olarak, Bambu'nun çeşitli kullanımları konusunda daha fazla farkındalık yaratılması önerilmektedir

The study painstakingly examined how Nigeria can tap into the economic and environmental benefits of bamboo. The study further looked at the wide range uses of bamboo in many fields such as textile industry, furniture industry, paper industry, weaving industry and its role in the environment as a carbon sink. As a multi-purpose plant and also due to its fibrous root and gregarious growth pattern, bamboo has the ability to control soil erosion. The study opined that as useful as bamboo is in so many fields, there can’t be much progress if there is no substantial capital investment in research, cultivation and utilization. It is recommended that there should be more awareness on the various uses of bamboo especially in the production of toothpick which Nigeria imports and its role in mitigating the issue of global warming as a result of its ability to carry out carbon sequestration.
