This publication provides policy-makers and project personnel with tools to assess present energy flows and future energy scenarios. It uses a geographic information system to generate and manage data independently of political boundaries, integrating and analysing relationships among socio-economic and environmental variable and facilitates the identification of priority areas and population that deserve greatest attention in efforts to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It is also useful in identifying the relevant data needed to analyse poverty alleviation, health issues and wood energy community forest programmes.
