Abstract:

In recent years, global demand for biofuels has increased as a result of changing oil prices coupled with concerns over energy security and climate change. In Mozambique, private investors have expressed growing interest in biofuels production. While this trend may create new livelihood opportunities, it may also undermine access to land and natural resources for rural people. This report explores the early impacts of the biofuels boom on access to land and on local livelihoods in Mozambique. It draws on fieldwork on biofuels projects representing different business models for agricultural production.
