    Outcomes


    • DIVERSE Open Dialogue Toolkit

      Set of tools to support open discussion in the Focus Labs: (1) a protocol to promote capacity building between bioenergy & biodiversity stakeholders, (2) summaries presenting the sustainability trade-offs related to using residue-based biomass, (3) sustainability and biodiversity indicators. All of these will be combined into a roadmap to guide bioenergy & biodiversity actors towards the joint identification of solutions to improve sustainability of regional bioenergy value-chains.PP9

    • DIVERSE pilot: a path towards sustainable & biodiversity-positive bioenergy routes in the Alpine Space

      Transnational pilot testing the Open Dialogue Toolkit (WP1) in 7 AS territories through the Focus Labs, each gathering local & regional stakeholders from the bioenergy and nature protection scene, and tailored to 2 value chains, i.e. biomass from agricultural & agrifood residues (PP3,4,5-6,9-10), and from forestry (LP,PP2,7,8-11-12). Setup of policy measures, management practices & energy communities/value-chain models to integrate biodiversity protection needs into regional bioenergy routes.PP6

    • Alpine Trajectories for sustainable & biodiversity-positive energy routes

      Guidelines consisting of 3 modules to help (1) integrate nature/biodiversity protection concepts and measures into regional & national energy policies, (2) improve sustainability of regional biomass value chains through agro-ecological, forest, and agri-food residue management practices, and (3) implement circular business models for energy communities & value-chains that incorporate insights on biodiversity protection.
