About GLF Climate 2021


Hosted digitally and in Glasgow alongside COP26, the GLF Climate 2021 hybrid conference made a unanimous call for ambitious, concrete action to stop the climate crisis.

Attended by 4,386 digital participants from 145 countries, along with 481 in-person participants at the University of Glasgow, the event featured 400 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth, and government leaders.

Across 67 plenaries, interactive sessions, launches, and climate talks, GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance – Frontiers of Change explored the potential of three key climate solutions: forest restoration, resilient food systems, and sustainable finance. Messages spread on social media rallied 41.34 million people around concrete ways to address the climate emergency as quickly as possible.


Biomass power generation and land restoration with bamboo


Indonesia is ambitiously targeting a 23% renewable energy mix by 2025, leveraging its abundant local resources, such as geothermal, biomass, hydro, solar, wind, and oceanic currents. The country sees biomass, with its flexible plant size and load-following capabilities, as a viable substitute for diesel power plants, particularly in regions like Timor Island.

By employing fast-growing leguminous trees on degraded land, biomass production not only generates power but also addresses environmental concerns, such as soil erosion and landscape fertility. To maximize benefits, a community-based business model is proposed, involving local communities in biomass production, boosting income, and simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This approach positions biomass power generation as a catalyst for sustainable energy, economic empowerment, and ecological restoration on a significant scale.
