What we do

FAO strives to assist member states to improve their specific wood energy situation in terms of social and economic viability, ecological sustainability, resource efficiency and emissions. FAO offers its support to member states by:

 Raising awareness of the importance of wood energy

  Collecting, improving and sharing accurate data

 Formulating, implementing and monitoring of sound wood energy policies

 Facilitating cross-sectoral communication and collaboration

 Applying sustainable and resource efficient production and consumption



FAO provides technical support acting as a neutral, international organization. FAO is not a funding organization and can thus not deploy vast financial support to projects directly. FAO can assist member states in actively seeking partners and donors to implement projects in the field of wood energy.
