FW: [Fwd: Energy, ecosystems and livelihoods: Understanding linkages in the face of climate change impacts]
Dear Climate-L readers,
You might be interested in this new IUCN report:
Implementing Sustainable Bioenergy Production: a compilation of tools and approaches, urges governments, bioenergy producers and investors to learn from the environmental community and to start implementing sustainable approaches for bioenergy production.
The publication addresses a range of sustainability issues from gender to invasive species; water management to landscape planning – some of which are rarely included in the bioenergy debate
Please see link below:
In addition IUCN has also released a background paper for Davos which might also be of interest: Energy, ecosystems and livelihoods: Understanding linkages in the face of climate change impacts, which highlights the fact that a well-managed environment will maximize energy security. The paper argues that to sustainably increase future energy supplies, natural resources need to be well-managed and enhanced.
