Bioenergy at Climate Negotiations: Visions, Challenges and Opportunities

McCormick, Kes LU (2010) World Bioenergy 2010: Conference & Exhibition on Biomass for Energy
Abstract
This paper provides observations and commentary on how bioenergy was presented and communicated at the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP 15) held in Denmark in December 2009, including the main conference and side events as well as “unofficial” parallel events and activities. We can learn significantly from the experiences of COP 15 in regards to how to develop and present visions for bioenergy, the major challenges confronting the expansion of bioenergy, and the near-term opportunities for the bioenergy industry. With the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) to be held in Mexico in November 2010, this paper contributes to a better understanding of how the bioenergy industry can influence policy-makers, attract media attention, and...

This paper provides observations and commentary on how bioenergy was presented and communicated at the 15th Conference of the Parties (COP 15) held in Denmark in December 2009, including the main conference and side events as well as “unofficial” parallel events and activities. We can learn significantly from the experiences of COP 15 in regards to how to develop and present visions for bioenergy, the major challenges confronting the expansion of bioenergy, and the near-term opportunities for the bioenergy industry. With the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) to be held in Mexico in November 2010, this paper contributes to a better understanding of how the bioenergy industry can influence policy-makers, attract media attention, and engage the general public and key stakeholders in a constructive dialogue to take full advantage of the potential of bioenergy to contribute to climate mitigation and adaptation. At COP 16 we need “to make it all happen”. (Less)
