2nd International Workshop on Sustainability and Resilience of Bioenergy for Climate Change: Support Exemplary Solutions, Business Models and Enabling Conditions

22 May 2017 to 24 May 2017
| Bali, Indonesia

Green growth and win-win strategies for sustainable climate action (GREEN-WIN) is an European Commission project that works related to Horizon2020 with topic to linkages between climate change actions and sustainable development. The project aims to identify green solutions that already exist at a specific location in specific sectors, help them spread to other locations and other sectors, and identify how incentive structures should be changed in order to create additional business models and innovations. It will assess the practical feasibility of implementing green growth strategies to meet mitigation, adaptation and sustainability goals.

This international workshop is working hand-in-hand with another European Commission projects which is transitions pathways and risk analysis for climate change mitigation and adaption strategies (TRANSrisk), interlinked with other objectives in Indonesia such as Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF), Udayana University (Unud) and PT. Sustainability and Resilience (su-re.co). It aimed to collaborate in analyze and accelerate the sustainable bioenergy business to promote climate change mitigation and adaptation pathways in Indonesia.

GREEN-WIN Indonesia case study is involving on work package 7 (WP7) with focus on energy poverty eradication and resilient livelihoods. This work package will analyse and contribute to the behavioral transition within the nexus of energy poverty eradication and resilient livelihoods.

TRANSrisk aimed to brings together quantitative models and qualitative approaches, focusing on participatory consultations with stakeholders as a link between the policy approaches. The workshop provides an opportunity to analyze the sustainability and climate resilience of low carbon transition pathways comprising of biofuels made from crop wastes and residues that are technically and economically feasible and acceptable from a social and environmental viewpoint.

In addition, ICCTF supports Indonesia government in order to provide alternative financing mechanisms to the appropriate climate change activities across Indonesia in line with its focus areas, which are land-based mitigation, energy, as well as resilience and adaptation.

Generally, Indonesia case will focus on energy poverty alleviation, food security and novel ecosystem services through bioenergy production in Bali which brings all those interests at once. This case will study the role of SMEs and community engagement in energy, climate-resilience, poverty alleviation and food security derived from agribusiness production including bioenergy. A particular focus will thereby lie on systemic solutions which link the production of novel energy and food services with climate adaptation and mitigation.
