The project objective is to increase the contribution of the rubberwood industry to national economies through more efficient utilisation of existing rubberwood and upgrading the competitiveness of rubberwood products vis-à-vis other wood products. The project adopts the demonstration of new rubberwood preservation techniques using environment-friendly preservative chemicals and the marketing strategies of rubberwood utilisation as key solutions for promoting the sustainable development of the rubberwood industry. That industry is labour-intensive, especially in logging, sawing and furniture manufacturing and thus provides local communities with employment opportunities.
