Field Document No.47, 1997
Wood and other biomass are major energy sources in all RWEDP member countries. Further wood energy development needs to be based on appropriate strategies, policies and planning, which, of course, require adequate data. However, data on the supply and utilization of wood energy are generally patchy and sometimes even conflicting. RWEDP, jointly with its member countries, is in the process of collecting, assessing and compiling relevant data.
The review presented in this field document is based upon secondary data available from sources at Thailand-based documentation centers, e.g., at FAO-RWEDP, other UN offices and AIT. It makes clear that significant differences exist between countries with respect to data availability. Hence, the document allows for analyzing data gaps and preparing for further strengthening of data bases, e.g. by identifying additional data sources in member countries and eventually by cost-effective primary data collection efforts.
