This workshop was the first in a series that provides input to the How2Guide for Bioenergy – a manual for policy and decision makers for the development and implementation of bioenergy technology roadmaps that are tailored to national frameworks, resources and capacities.
The event was organized by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in the framework of the International Low-Carbon Energy Technology Platform, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) Bioenergy and Food Security Projects (BEFS). The workshop was organized with the support of the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI), the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), the South African Sugar Association (SASA), the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). This workshop focused on the Southern African region and in particularly on the use of waste-to-energy and biogas.
