The objective of this project is that To contribute to sustainable bioenergy development for the benefit of local people in developing countries, while minimising negative impacts on local environment and rural livelihoods, and contributing to global climate change mitigation. This will be achieved by producing and communicating relevant policy analyses about the effects of biofuels on forests and livelihoods for governments, and corporate and civil society decision making bodies.
The two primary impacts expected from this project are:
- Local people in developing countries are benefiting from sustainable bioenergy development, planned and carried out in such a way that it minimises negative impacts on local livelihoods and the environment, and contributes to local income generation, livelihood improvement and to global climate change mitigation.
- National governments, civil society organisations and corporations in developing and developed countries having and are using better knowledge, information and tools for designing policies and programmes for sustainable forest-based bioenergy development
