Growing demands for food, feed, fibres and fuels together with prospects for a shift away from fossil fuels set the frame for potentially fierce competition for limited land and biomass resources.
This session will provide up-to-date information about climate and sustainability effects of bioenergy systems as well as governance addressing opportunities and challenges in developing new biobased solutions that contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation along with also other sustainable development goals.
