Study was conducted in Pawe district, Benishangul-Gumuz National Regional State, northwestern Ethiopia. The objective of this study was to evaluate Household dependency and Constraints on cultivation of lowland Bamboo (Oxytenanthera abyssinica). For this study, two kebeles were selected based on random sampling technique. Data were collected from a total of 136 households. Households were selected using simple random sampling technique. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) which is chi square was used to analyze the data collected. The economic contribution of bamboo for local households is described in terms of raw-materials for house construction, fuel wood, farm tools, and also for animal fodder. Major constraints for cultivation and management of low land bamboo were lack of seed/ seedlings, small landholding, and animal damage. Government and NGOs should play great role in order to support and create awareness to local people. Moreover, there should be done to solve problems of shortage of seed/ seedlings by collecting seed from the seed sources areas and raising seedling in nursery and distributing to the farmer. The bamboo in natural forest is now affected by fire and free grazing and this should be controlled to provide better products with in short period of time.
