The importance of self-reflection in research

Alongside a group of my fellow study colleagues at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences I, Gabrielle Tillberg, was given the opportunity, thanks to the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI), to attend the Nordic Africa Days 2016 held in Uppsala, Sweden.

In Europe and globally the interest for bioenergy is growing. The biorefinery sector is a new and rapidly growing part of the bioenergy family. Traditional forest industries can deliver new products, expanding our markets and creating positive synergy. However, the bioenergy industry also has challenges to handle.

The seminar will focus on forests and other off-farm areas that constitute vital resources for the food security and livelihoods of the rural poor in many developing countries. These lands are often used in integrated ways by local communities under communal customary arrangements while often formally owned by the state.
