    Pilot Testing of GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy in Colombia 2014

    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.

    FAO/GBEP, December 2011. The Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy 2012
    Also available in:

    The Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) has a clearly defined mission: to promote the wider production and use of modern bioenergy, particularly in the developing world where traditional use of biomass is prevalent. Exactly how modern bioenergy is developed, deployed, and used is a decision that individual countries will make according to their domestic needs and circumstances. The Partnership established the Task Force on Sustainability to promote the sustainable production and use of bioenergy . The Task Force has developed a science-based, technically sound, and highly relevant set of measurements and indicators that can inform policy-makers and other stakeholders in countries seeking to develop their bioenergy sector to help meet national goals of sustainable development. This report presents 24 indicators of sustainability regarding the production and use of modern bioenergy, broadly defined. These indicators were developed to provide policy-makers and other stakeholders a set of analytical tools that can inform the development of national bioenergy policies and programmes and monitor the impact of these policies and programmes. The indicators were developed by the Partners and Observers of GBEP and provide a framework for assessing the relationship between production and use of modern bioenergy and sustainable development. The indicators were intentionally crafted to report on the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable development.
