Bioenergy and Food Security (BEFS)
In January 2014, a test run of the BEFS Rapid Appraisal was conducted in the Philippines.
A team of experts headed by Professor Rex Demafelis at the University of Los Baños was responsible for data collection, in coordination with the relevant government agencies.
The data collected were then used by the Technical Working Group of the National Biofuels Board to run the BEFS Rapid Appraisal during a workshop that was held at the Sugar Regulatory Administration in Quezon City. Back-stopping was provided by the BEFS team.
These results contributed to inform the development of the Philippines Sustainable Bioenergy and Food Security Roadmap under the BEFS ASEAN project.
