The project governs the secondment of Dr Jino Kwon. He joins CIFOR to work on identifying the potential of sustainable biofuel production on degraded and marginal land based on environmental factors of degraded land in Indonesia. Through collaborative research, the socioeconomic and environmental outcomes of bioenergy production on degraded land have been examined and further evaluation is being carried out. The Korean National Institute of Forest Science (NIFoS) has previous collaborative research experience and data from forest landscape restoration on the degraded land of three continents: Asia, North Africa and South America. The result of NIFoS' previous experience will be considered, and the results of ongoing research in Indonesia will be discussed and compared.
