The Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) is an international initiative established in 2006 to implement the commitments taken by the G8 in the 2005 Gleneagles Plan of Action to support „biomass and biofuels deployment, particularly in developing countries where biomass’ use is prevalent“. It received support from the G20 Ministers of Agriculture in the Paris Action Plan (June 2011) as well as from the G20 Leaders in the 2013 G20 Saint Petersburg Declaration. At pres-ent, GBEP brings together 37 Partners and 39 Observers from governments, international organisations as well as private and civil society stakeholders in a joint commitment to advance bioenergy for sustainable development, climate change mitigation and food and energy security.

The GBEP sustainability indicators for bioenergy

The production and use of bioenergy is growing in many parts of the world as countries seek to diversify their energy sources in a manner that helps promote sustainable development. Modern bioenergy can provide multiple benefits, including promoting rural economic development, increasing household income, mitigating climate change and providing access to modern energy services.
