Bioenergy and Biodiversity: Potential for Sustainable Use of Degraded Lands
Bioenergy and Biodiversity: Potential for Sustainable Use of Degraded Lands
The Federal Environment Agency (UBA), on behalf of the German Ministry for Environment, is funding a research project on sustainable global biomass trade, carried out by Oeko-Institut and IFEU until end of 2009.
In that context, a sub-project will identify global potentials of degraded land suitable for bioenergy production. A GIS-based mapping with FAO and other global land cover, soil and other data will screen global land, and case studies several countries will match the global screening with “bottom-up” analyses.
The work will be carried out in collaboration with local expert teams and international organizations (CI, CURES, FAO, RSB, UNEP, WWF) to identify costs of using degraded land, taking into account associated social issues, and benefits for e.g. GHG balances, food security, and biodiversity.
The event will present the study approach, offer time to discuss the concept, and provide opportunities to contact the research team.
