4th Medium to Long-Term PlanInformation Analysis


In Africa, bioenergy is a main source of energy for 70 to 80 percent of population (approximately 800 million people). It has become more challenging for Africans to respond to the global demand towards low-carbon society while adapting themselves to the rapidly changing environment and increasing uncertainty caused by climate change, population growth and land degradation among others.

In cooperation with the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) and Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS), this workshop, to be held in ICRAF International Conference Center, Nairobi, Kenya, will provide information on how to increase bioenergy availability with improved food security while ensuring positive social and environmental impacts in rural Africa.

Presenters include good practice winners from Call for submissions: IRENA collected good practices in 2017.
