This document was prepared for a Workshop on Issues for Sustainable Use of Biomass Resources for Energy held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in 2005. The document includes two case studies of biomass development in Cambodia. The first provides recommendations for small and medium enterprises in the energy industry to plant leucaena tree farms in order to provide a sustainable source of biomass energy as well as food for livestock. The second case study examines how a 100% biomass gasification project has been successfully implemented in a rural community, with funding from the World Bank and managed by a village energy cooperative.
