The UN-Energy Bioenergy Decision Support Tool (DST) was developed jointly by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) under the framework of UN-Energy. UN-Energy is an UN agency-wide coordination mechanism on energy. 

The DST provides stepwise guidance to decision makers in governments to develop sustainable bioenergy policies and strategies, and to assess investment proposals. It was created as a website that allows users use the tool interactively. After an entry page providing on introduction to key issues, the user is guided to an e-book function that provides the full text and can be printed.
