"The Bioenergy Decision Support Tool (DST) aims to assist policymakers and programme developers in capitalising on the opportunities, meeting the challenges and mitigating the risks that can arise from a significant up-scaling of bioenergy production and use. The DST is divided into a number of decision support modules, with each module including links to other modules where appropriate, as well as links to external sources and references. This module explains the basic decision framework, describes the purpose of the DST and the various decision modules and presents a guide for users."
