    ForthcomingConflict sensitive reporting has become an important field of research since the Norwegian prof. Johan Galtung started his research into peace and conflict resolution, which has been further developed by several authors, such as Mari Holmboe, Jake Lynch, Annabel McGoldrick, Erving Goffman, or Nadine Bilke.

A questionnaire with a set of nine semi-structured questions is used to obtain data from the students between 15th July and 15th August 2022

    The challenges posed by climate change/global warming are very alarming, and they have become the focal point of attention for researchers within the global environmental domains. The development of bioenergy can help salvage this situation as a renewable energy source that makes use of recycled waste materials to create useful energy products. This review study found that the development of sustainable bioenergy is environmentally friendly, and it has been proven to be a better means of recycling waste materials into final energy products for sustainable development. The study hereby concluded and recommended that environmental policies concerning the sustainable development of bioenergy should be adopted within the various nations' local laws and the global environment at large, as this will result in adhering strictly to international environmental legal frameworks regulating the prevention and reduction of waste materials. The possible correlation of bioenergy with the Sustainable Development Goals is also highlighted
