EcoPlanet Bamboo operates a smallholder farmer model within the company's Eastern Africa operations. These operations target a dual objective of achieving high ecosystem benefits, including a reduction in soil erosion and protection of riparian areas, with ensuring longterm benefits flow to smallholder farmers and landowners.

All Rwanda based developments build off an extended Feasibility Study, "A Bamboo Based Bio-Economy for Rwanda" commissioned by the Government of Rwanda.

In addition to the smallholder farmer projects under development, EcoPlanet Bamboo provides advisory services to government institutions, conservation organizations and various partners working towards common goals across Eastern Africa.
