MoFuSS was designed to help clean cooking projects estimate the fraction of non-renewable biomass (fNRB) using a sound methodology that integrates most of the complexities associated with woody biomass harvest patterns and natural regrowth. In the aim of not cutting corners, MoFuSS evolved into a complex GIS modeling tool that integrates various drivers of land change, woodfuel demand sources, and end-user technologies.
MoFuSS is an open-source freeware developed by the National Autonomous University of Mexico and the Stockholm Environment Institute. It is a GIS-based model that simulates the spatio-temporal impacts of woodfuel harvesting over dynamic landscapes, while accounting for savings in non-renewable woody biomass from reduced consumption.

The geoprocessing of woodfuel harvest probability maps is quite demanding and for most countries requires parallel computing capacities, using optimized algorithms. This standalone tool, also a part MoFuSS-US, should be use for those users running MoFuSS outside this website.
Most MoFuSS workshops are organized on demand. Please contact us in case you need specific training or want to conduct analyses over an area of interest in the global south
