Web-based compilation of good socio-economic practices in agriculture and forestry, based on inputs from producers.
In order to ensure that modern bioenergy development is sustainable and that it safeguards food security, a number of good practices can be implemented throughout the bioenergy supply chain.
BEFSCI has carried out a survey of bioenergy producers in order to gather examples of the implementation of good socio-economic practices in this sector. The main socio-economic dimensions that may be impacted by bioenergy production are:
- access to land
- employment, wages and labour conditions
- income generation and inclusion of smallholders
- local food security
- community development
- energy security and local access to energy
- gender equity
