BiomassNet – The first pan-African expert network on food and non-food biomass

BiomassNet is the first pan-African expert network on development topics within the food and non-food biomass sector.

Supporting sustainable sector development

BiomassNet aims at promoting more efficient and sustainable biomass production, processing and trading to enhance food security and support the emerging bio-economies in Africa. In particular, BiomassNet encourages the use of the Value Web Approach and thus enhance system thinking and innovation in this sector.

Linking stakeholders

The network links up scientists, experts, policy makers, authorities, development organisations and practitioners to strengthen the African biomass sector at local, national and international levels.

Establishing collaborations on the longer term

Currently established as an outreach activity of the BiomassWeb research project, BiomassNet is expected to sustainably boost collaboration on the longer run by being hosted by the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) from 2018 on.

How to get involved – Join our Dgroup

BiomassNet will be implemented through an interactive website and the BiomassNet Dgroup as a platform for moderated discussions on pertinent topics.
