This project aims to identify suitable crop for bioenergy production on degraded land that can contribute to combating climate change while also producing a variety of socio-economic and environmental benefits to rural communities. The project will employ a combination of participatory research methods, field based action research and laboratory/chemical analysis. To avoid food-energy conflicts we propose to use degraded and/or abandoned land for this project, thus helping to restore degraded land while reducing demand for fossil fuels. This project will inform and shape key development policy processes in Kalimantan such as the Masterplan for Green Growth in Central/East Kalimantan province.
