e-Workshop: Opportunities of bioenergy and biofuels in developing economies
This workshop, which is organised by the IEA Bioenergy Technology Cooperation Programme and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), aims to show examples of bioenergy and biofuel related opportunities in developing economies, both for the production of (local) energy and for providing economic, social, and environmental co-benefits. It will also provide guidance on tools to accelerate clean energy transitions and improved energy access in emerging economies.
The workshop will consist of three separate sessions:
• The first session (on Monday 22 May) will provide examples how clean energy transitions and improved energy access in emerging economies can be supported.
• The second session (on Tuesday 23 May) will consider opportunities for sustainable biomass supply and its co-benefits, e.g., in landscape restoration, improved livelihoods or cleaner air
• The third session (also on Tuesday 23 May) looks into opportunities of sustainable biofuel production in developing economies to produce transport fuels and clean cooking fuels.
