Scoping report on biofuels projects in five developing countries

Research reports

Written by Anna Locke, Giles Henley

This report summarises a set of scoping exercises carried out in early 2013 into the status of biofuel projects in five countries: Ethiopia, Indonesia, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia.

It constitutes the first part of a larger exercise undertaken to explore the impacts of biofuel production on local food security in developing countries.

This scoping exercise was undertaken to determine:

  • Whether countries which are commonly referred to as important destinations and hosts for biofuel projects have seen commensurate levels of activity by planned projects; and

  • If so, whether projects have reached a stage at which it is possible to assess the impacts of the biofuel projects on local food security.
