< Fuelling exclusion? The biofuels boom and poor people’s access to land >
by Lorenzo Cotula, Nat Dyer and Sonja Vermeulen (http://www.iied.org/pubs/display.php?o=12551IIED).
The report explores current and potential impacts of the increasing spread of biofuels on access to land in producer countries, particularly for poorer rural people. It finds that biofuels could revitalise rural agriculture and livelihoods, but may also marginalise poorer people - particularly where local land rights are insecure, capacity to enforce them is limited, and major power asymmetries shape relations between local resource users and large industry players.
The report takes stock of evidence from Africa, Latin America and Asia, charting both negative experiences and promising approaches.
