FARA Report Maps Food and Bioenergy in Africa

August 2, 2010

Mapping Food and Bioenergy in Africa, Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa, June 2010

From the report: Bioenergy interest has gained much attention in the last years due to the positive issues that it can bring specially for developing countries but at the same time because of the many concerns on risks and trade-offs that could generate. FARA considers that the production of bioenergy crops will need to take into account a) a broader understanding of the extent of the issues and concerns surrounding food to bioenergy conversion and b) the accompanying policy/institutional dimensions as input to the development of an appropriate and truly responsive food and bioenergy programs in developing economies.
