The Implementation Guide for the Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy has been developed to complement and enhance the first edition of The Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy, published in 2011.

It includes guidance that is based on the implementation of the Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) Sustainability Indicators in fourteen countries, spanning four continents. On the basis of the lessons learnt from this implementation of the GBEP Sustainability Indicators (GSI) at national and local level, guidance has been provided on methodological and practical issues that were not addressed in the original report.

This includes both cross-cutting issues that concern the implementation of the set of GSIs (Section 1), as well as methodological guidance for each of the 24 GSIs (Section 2).

This Guide is to be used by practitioners, in conjunction with the first edition of The Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy, to ensure an effective and successful implementation of the GSIs in their country.
