Biomass Energy Sector (BEST) Planning Guide


The Biomass Energy Sector Planning Guide recognises the importance of governance of the biomass energy sector and provides a methodology for developing more efficient cross-sectoral management structures with practical, step-by-step guidance to facilitate coordination between stakeholders from different sectors, agreement on a shared goal, reliable sector data, awareness of trends and the development of an action plan to improve governance of the sector. It is a revised version of the Biomass Energy Strategy Guide published by EUEI PDF and GIZ in 2011, through integrating the lessons learnt during the application of the methodology in some countries.
