Background Information
The project “Biomass Energy for Employment and Energy Security”, funded by the Czech Development Agency, is directly implemented by UNDP Bosnia and Herzegovina Country Office.
The key project objective is contribution to the improvement of local population living standard by long term reduction of the CO2 emissions, through a general approach of a higher renewable energy share in the B&H energy targets for gross final energy consumption. Domestic benefits include employment generation, energy security, greenhouse gases (GHG) emission reduction, economic development of micro regions, contribution to B&H’s EU accession, and establishment of sustainable mechanisms for financial support of wood biomass projects and raised awareness regarding benefits of using wood biomass for energy generation.
Since 2009, UNDP Energy and Environment portfolio in B&H includes a number of projects that contribute to environmentally sustainable development and use of natural resources. This project is aimed at increasing the wood biomass demand, improving wood biomass supply chain, overcoming technical, legislative and awareness barriers and enhancing research on these issues throughout B&H.
Project activities are designed in order to lead to stronger partnerships, networking and supporting schemes within the private, public and government sectors. These activities are contributing to the following outcomes of the project:

· Developed policy for sustainable wood biomass utilization in B&H reflected to the legislation and use in practice;

· Quality and availability of the wood biomass energy carrier for heating purposes increased due to the adoption and use of improved methods of wood biomass processing;

· Business models and financing schemes developed and enabled for investments in wood biomass infrastructure projects / Implementation of demonstration projects.
