Abstract [en]

This paper discusses the use of energy provision as a strategy for promoting sustainabledevelopment. We briefly discuss the role that bioenergy can play in addressing environmentand development issues through the promotion of efficient renewable alternatives fortransport and electrification in developing countries. We argue that accumulated experiencesprovide guidance to how energy policies and programs can contribute to overall developmentgoals in developing countries. The topic is of high relevance for multilateral organizationssuch as UNCTAD, the World Bank, development assistance agencies, and nationalgovernments in developing countries.
