  • Open discussion with participants in the session

 

About the presentation

In 2011, the Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) developed the most widely recognized and agreed set of indicators for the assessment and monitoring of bioenergy sustainability: The GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy (GSI). Since then, they have been implemented in 14 countries. In 2016-2018, FAO measured the indicators in Paraguay to assess the sustainability of forest biomass for energy, and ethanol from corn and sugarcane.

Constance Miller and Tiziana Pirelli, experts from the GBEP team at FAO, will introduce the GSI and their relevance for data collection and policy development at the national level, and will then focus on the results of the implementation of the indicators in Paraguay to give examples of the recommendations for the sustainable development of bioenergy that fed from this measurement.
