The purpose of the Global Bioenergy Partnership is to provide a mechanism for Partners to organize, coordinate and implement targeted international research, development, demonstration and commercial activities related to production, delivery, conversion and use of biomass for energy, with a particular focus on developing countries. GBEP also provides a forum for implementing effective policy frameworks, identifying ways and means to support investments, and removing barriers to collaborative project development and implementation. The Partnership brings together public decision-makers, representatives of the private sector and civil society as well as international agencies with expertise in bioenergy. The WCRE signed the ToR of the Global Bio Energy Partnership.
