Since 2007, the GMS Working Group on Agriculture (WGA) has supported the GMS countries in carrying out a study on strategies and options for biofuels and rural renewable energy development in the GMS. There are three outputs for this projects:
Subregional framework for bionergy development with food security concerns mainstreamed
Capacities of government institutions, service providers and rural communities to support bioenergy development
Knowledge products and business models for ensuing investment project from pilot projects and studies.
The project provides support to gender-responsive investment models in targeted countries. Moreover, gender-sensitive capacity-building support is provided to all stakeholders of the project.
