Frame of Image rops or wastes, and municipal wastes.”As such, there are numerous sources that generate biomass. However, the rapid increase of agricultural wastes has become a widespread concern. The agricultural sector alone generates about 140 billion metric tonnes (M/T) of biomass every year worldwide.
Increased agricultural outputs leave ecologically vexing problems: rotting agricultural waste, for example, emits methane and leachate, contaminating the land and water. The burning of waste by farmers to clear the field produces CO2 and other pollutants. Yet this practice appears to be widely used especially in developing countries where strong regulatory instruments to control such a practice is absent. As a result, the increased environmental problems concerning agricultural biomass give rise to the proper management of the wastes, paving a ground for the searching of means to convert agricultural biomass into energy or material resources. As succinctly epitomised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), agricultural biomass can be an excellent source of renewable resources but “causes problems when not used.” Then the challenge is to utilise biomass productively, not just for energy but for other uses.

Abstract

The concept of the green economy has gained substantial interest and support as a response to the climate and economic crises that the world has been facing in recent years. This shift may impose new trade barriers for developing countries. As the demand for the green products, on the other hand, has increased, export markets for green and sustainable food, products, services, energy and tourism has also continued to grow, opening new market for the developing countries. Some developing countries take advantage of this new trade market.
This joint consulting project provided effective assistant to build the capacity of the Asia-Pacific Countries’ both public and private sector personnel on green trade. The comparative study on the best practice case studies provided opportunities to share the Korean government’s commitment and capacity for green growth.
