Task 43RegularIEA Bioenergy

Joint organization of IEA Bioenergy Task 43, SNS-NKJ and CAR-ES.

This conference aims at:

  • Identifying lessons learned on how data and scientific knowledge may inform development of well-functioning, credible and legitimate sustainability governance systems for bioenergy and the bioeconomy. This also includes their continuous improvement and adaptation to new conditions.
  • Exploring and comparing the variety of approaches to sustainability governance that are emerging or exist in different geographical regions, for different biomass-based supply chains, as a basis for building theory on how trust and legitimacy of sustainability governance systems is granted and achieved.
  • Providing a forum for information exchange between researchers and other stakeholders involved in developing sustainability regulations and standards, assuring that standards are being met, or implementing standards on-the-ground in the bioenergy and bioeconomy sectors, through which policy advice can be developed.
