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.

The key results of the BEFS Rapid Appraisal test run related to transport and rural electrification were presented by the Technical Working Group to the National Biofuels Board.

These results contributed to inform the development of the Philippines Sustainable Bioenergy and Food Security Roadmap under the BEFS ASEAN project.
