    Pilot Testing of GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy in Colombia 2014
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) has produced a set of twenty-four indicators for the assessment and monitoring of bioenergy sustainability at the national level. The GBEP indicators are intended to inform policymakers about the environmental, social and economic sustainability aspects of the bioenergy sector in their country and guide them towards policies that foster sustainable development. FAO, which is among the founding members of the Global Bioenergy Partnership, tested the indicat ors in Colombia and Indonesia, with generous support from the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Natural Resource, and Nuclear Safety of Germany. This report presents the results of the testing of the GBEP indicators in Colombia. The testing provided Colombia with an understanding of how to establish the means of a longterm, periodic monitoring of its domestic bioenergy sector based on the GBEP indicators. Such periodic monitoring would enhance t he knowledge and understanding of this sector and more generally of the way in which the contribution of the agricultural and energy sectors to national sustainable development could be evaluated. The testing in Colombia also provided a few lessons learnt about how to apply the indicators as a tool for sustainable development and how to enhance their practicality.

    The Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) has produced a set of twenty-four indicators for the assessment and monitoring of bioenergy sustainability at the national level. The GBEP indicators are intended to inform policymakers about the environmental, social and economic sustainability aspects of the bioenergy sector in their country and guide them towards policies that foster sustainable development. FAO, which is among the founding members of GBEP, supported the implementation of the GBEP indicators in Viet Nam, with generous support from the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the Federal Ministry of the Environment, Natural Resource, and Nuclear Safety of Germany. This report presents the main results of the implementation of the GBEP indicators in Viet Nam, where the following bioenergy pathways, which were deemed particularly relevant by national stakeholders, were analyzed: ethanol from cassava, and biogas at both household and industrial levels. In addition to offering interesting insights into the sustainability of the selected bioenergy pathways, the implementation of the GBEP indicators provided Viet Nam with an understanding of how to establish the means of a long term, periodic monitoring of its domestic bioenergy sector based on the GBEP indicators. Furthermore, it provided a few lessons learnt about how to apply the indicators as a tool for sustainable development and how to enhance their practicality. The work undertaken in the context of this project falls under FAO’s Strategic Objectives 2 and 4.

    Project
    Capacity building on the Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) sustainability indicators for bioenergy in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Countries
    A project funded by GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany Grant Agreement Number: 81227987 - Final Report
    2019
    Also available in:

    This report was developed in the framework of the project “Capacity Building on GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy in the ECOWAS countries” (GCP/RAF/515/GER-GIZ), funded by GIZ on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany. The main aim of the project was to build or enhance existing capacities of local experts to understand, assess and implement the GBEP sustainability indicators for bioenergy in Togo and Ghana, and use them to inform bioenergy policy decision making. Activities were primarily based on the sharing of experience and lessons learnt from the full implementation of the GBEP sustainability indicators within the countries of other GBEP Partners, with a focus on wood energy. Furthermore, the project aimed to sensitize policy makers and relevant stakeholders in both of the ECOWAS target countries on the potential of bioenergy production and use to better contribute to GHG emission reductions by replacing fossil fuel and traditional biomass use, while harnessing socio-economic co-benefits. This report presents the main outcomes and lessons learned of the project in Togo and Ghana, where national workshops on bioenergy and trainings on the full implementation of the GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy were organized, with a focus on the wood energy pathway both at household scale and at productive level.
