UNECE/FAO, in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of Serbia will together organize a seminar in Belgrade, Serbia, focusing on the opportunities and benefits of using modern wood energy systems. With generous support from the government of Austria and UNDP Serbia and the Faculty of Forestry of the State University of Belgrade this two-day event will feature speakers from Serbia, Slovenia, Austria, Italy, Sweden and Scotland.
The meeting, which is open to participants from Serbia and neighbouring countries in south east Europe, aims to raise awareness generally of the environmental, economic and social benefits that would result from a wider-scale use of modern wood energy. Those attending will be drawn from government, municipalities, forest owners and managers as well as the wood processing sector, whose co-products could play an increasingly important role in energy provision, helping to improve Serbia's energy security and contribute to rural economic development.
