Abstract:

The recently inaugurated Secretariat of the Global Bioenergy Partnership GBEP will help UN efforts to promote green fuels by facilitating a global political forum to support bioenergy production, marketing and use, and assisting international exchanges of know-how and technology. The focus will be mainly on helping developing countries, governments and institutions formulate sustainable bio-energy policies and strategies to help reduce dependency on fossil fuel, as well as encouraging investments in multilateral projects for bio-energy development. It will also assist in formulating guidelines for measuring greenhouse gas emission reductions due to the use of bio-fuels. The GBEP Secretariat is located at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization headquarters in Rome and is supported by the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea.
