The conference consists of two days of presentation and discussion on the following themes:
1) Direct Land Use Change (DLUC) - magnitude and methodologies for assessment; and
2) Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) - drivers of ILUC and mechanisms to manage ILUC;
The two days will be followed by an optional field excursion to an operating bioenergy facility in the area. Goals of the workshop include: share knowledge and increase understanding of land use change resulting from expansion of bioenergy: impacts on net GHG emissions and other environmental services; approaches to evaluation of impacts; inclusion in GHG accounting; approaches to management of indirect land use change; and establish teams to prepare working documents for a side event at COP-15.
Goals of the workshop will be to :
At this time, the workshop organizers are soliciting expressions of interest and abstracts from researchers in the field.
