An interesting report on “Criteria and indicators for sustainable woodfuels “ has just been published by FAO.

The guide outlines global woodfuel use and supply, noting that in both developed and developing countries; wood-based biomass is receiving increasing attention as a potential renewable energy source. The guide reviews existing criteria and indicators systems and certification schemes, and highlights policy and institutional frameworks needed to ensure sustainable woodfuel use. It reviews social and cultural aspects of woodfuel usage, including health, safety and gender issues, and discusses environmental and economic considerations. Based on these, the authors present a selection of criteria and indicators for sustainable woodfuel use and sustainable charcoal production.
