This project aims to identify the potential of sustainable biofuel production on degraded and marginal land, supporting rural livelihoods and rehabilitation of degraded land in Indonesia. The project employs a combination of approaches including literature review and synthesis, spatial analysis and modelling, participatory research methods, field based action research on tree/crop performance and laboratory/chemical analysis. In acknowledgement of potential food-energy-environment conflicts we consider only situations involving degraded and/or abandoned land for biomass production. The results will help to inform and shape key development policy processes such as the Sustainable Bioenergy Programme in Central and East Kalimantan Provinces.
