The Woodfuels Integrated Supply/Demand Overview Mapping (WISDOM) is a methodological tool that can be used in with GIS mapping to assess wood-fuel supply and demand patters and identify wood-fuel “hotspots”. It is intended to be a more qualitative approach to wood-fuel supply and demand in developing countries. The authors stress that it should be considered an assessing and strategic planning tool to identify priority geographic locations for action. The WISDOM methodology is highlighted in a case study of wood-fuel "hotspots" in Mexico.
