Understanding Trade-Offs of Modern Bioenergy Solutions to Enable Sustainable Development in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Short Introductive summary

Bioenergy is the leading renewable energy source as well as a primary energy source in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). However, in many cases biomass use is unsustainable and inefficient, resulting in significant environmental and health risks for those least able to manage them. Modern bioenergy solutions can play an essential role in enabling sustainable development while limiting adverse impacts, including emissions.
