Towards Sustainable Production and Use of Resources - Assessing Biofuels

The assessment report on biofuels, prepared by the Resource Panel for Sustainable Resource Management, is a flagship publication of the Panel, the first assessment report to come out. It aims at improving the analytical basis for decision making towards sustainable production and use of biomass for energy purposes ("biofuels"), at the international, regional and national level. It focuses on different aspects and options for more efficient and sustainable use of biomass in the overall resource context. The analysis accounts for the environmental effects of so-called "modern" biofuels while considering economic aspects and social concerns, especially with regard to relevant side-effects and potential synergies. The executive summary is dedicated to policy makers and explains in a simple and action-oriented manner the results of the main report. The flyer will report these results to a broader audience.
