An overview of the content and scope of a future biomass programme is presented. The aim of the programme is the implementation of large-scale bio-energy and industrial activities in the long term through integrated regional projects.

Emerging problems and opportunities that have been considered include: (i) the environment; (ii) agriculture; (iii) socio-economics; (iv) abandoned land; (v) changing energy prices; (vi) cooperation with developed and developing countries.
