This topic will be addressed in a new IEA Bioenergy Task 43 report “Novel regional and landscape-based approaches to govern sustainability of bioenergy and biomaterials supply chains” to be launched on July 13th, 2020. The report is based on nine case studies from Africa, Asia, South America and Europe, where landscape governance has been adopted to manage the resources and land uses with the participation of the different stakeholders from government organisations, the private sector and non-governmental organisations.
The overall aim of this report is to better understand how the characteristics of regional governance approaches influence their effectiveness and legitimacy as documentation of sustainability of bioenergy and biomaterial supply chains, in different scales and geographical settings.
FNR represents Germany, on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, in the Executive Committee of IEA Bioenergy. In Task 43 “Sustainable biomass supply integration for bioenergy within the broader bioeconomy” Germany is represented by Jörg Schweinle, Thünen Institute.
