The Cane Resources Network for Southern Africa will demonstrate the role of sugarcane resources in supporting sustainable energy solutions and improving economic competitiveness within the sugar industry and its affiliates in southern Africa. The network will bring together researchers, policy-makers, and industry representatives in a series of workshops and exchanges to evaluate technical, socio-economic, environmental, and policy aspects of alternative cane resource scenarios for the region. The project team will compare current practices to the state-of-the-art and develop a set of performance benchmarks and implementation strategies for the region. Close co-operation between industrialised and developing country participants will facilitate an improved understanding of the technologies, markets and policies through which the sugarcane agro-industry can address the demands of globalisation while pursuing the goals of sustainable development.
