The project "Towards Sustainability Certification of Jatropha Bio-fuels in Mozambique" aims to build up knowledge for future certification of Jatropha bio-fuels through a benchmark pilot sustainability assessment using existing sustainability criteria frameworks. This report is the final report of activity 1. The result is a methodology for the pilot sustainability assessment of the Jatropha producers approved by the international and local project teams. In order to deliver this methodology, the project team has reviewed the most advanced and most relevant certification schemes that encourage sustainable biomass production. The project team has selected one methodology for the pilot sustainability assessment of the three Jatropha producers. This report aims to give insights in the selection process of the pilot assessment methodology, and in the assessment process itself. It contains three chapters and five annexes. Chapter 1 focuses on the context for the sustainability assessments in the project, while Chapter 2 provides an overview of relevant sustainability assessment schemes. Chapter 3 presents how the selection was made for the sustainability assessment methodology chosen for the project. Annexes I to V provide further background for the selection and work done so far. The questionnaires developed for the pilot assessment form separate documents.
