    Using Prosopis as an energy source for refugees and host communities in Djibouti, and controlling its rapid spread 2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    FAO, in collaboration with Djibouti’s Ministry of Agriculture, Water, Fishery, Livestock and Marine Resources and Ministry of Housing, Urban Planning and Environment, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, conducted the study presented in this report to assess the use of Prosopis woody biomass as a source of energy and options for increasing the efficiency of woodfuel supply chains. The study used socio-economic data collected through interviews, focus-group discussions, a desk review and a field visit, and a remote sensing analysis of Prosopis distribution, combined with field data, in four areas of interest in Djibouti: Douda, As Eyla, Tadjourah, and Hanlé. The report includes: • an assessment of challenges in meeting energy demand in displacement settings in Djibouti; • data on the distribution of Prosopis in the country and the quantity of standing Prosopis biomass at selected sites (which are also the country’s main Prosopis areas); and • an analysis of the economic potential of processing Prosopis woody biomass into briquettes and charcoal.

    What woodfuels can do to mitigate climate change 2010
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Climate change can be mitigated in several ways, but most strategies emphasize reducing greenhouse gas emissions by reducing energy use and switching to energy sources that are less carbon intensive than fossil fuels. This publication explores the scope, potential and implications for using woodfuels to replace fossil fuels and thereby contribute to climate change mitigation. It analyses the current woodfuel offset mechanisms in place and their relative emission reduction potenti als. The scope is limited to solid woodfuels (fuelwood, charcoal, prepared biomass such as woodchips and pellets, and recovered products or residues from wood processing industries). However, some themes covered will be applicable to all woodfuels, notably the socio-economic and environmental impacts, financing options and overall development implications of more intensive and efficient use of woodfuels. The publication will be of interest to specialists and policy-makers in fo restry, climate change and renewable energy, as well as to forest managers, students and general audiences interested in learning more about the role of forests in energy production and the resulting mitigation potential.

    Biomass Energy in the Asia-Pacific Region: Current Status, Trends and Future Setting 2009
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    In recent years, global interest in renewable energy resources, including biomass, has burgeoned. Biomass is used predominantly in developing countries, mostly in the form of wood and agricultural residues, as fuel for cooking and heating. This thematic study examines the current situation and trends as regards biomass energy consumption and analyzes the driving forces influencing change. It also assesses probable scenarios for development of various biomass energy segments in the Asia-Pacific r egion. Wood-based energy is the main focus in the study.
