The aim of this first-ever assessment of the global trade in rattan products is to map global rattan trade flows, identify key markets, and outline major trends. This is important background information for the WWF Sustainable Rattan Programme currently being implemented in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam.

This assessment is primarily based on trade data provided by the United Nations Commodity Trade Statistics Database (UN Comtrade). Due to shortcomings associated with data provided by some of the key rattan-producing countries, this assessment is based mainly on trade data reported by import countries. Other relevant reports and websites, such as the International Network for Bamboo and Rattan (INBAR), as well as various experts were also used as sources of information.
