This book is the first of its kind, providing a comprehensive overview of the biofuel debate in developing countries. The chapters are written by a multidisciplinary team of experts who expose the key drivers and impacts of biofuel production and use. The book covers impacts as diverse as air pollution, biodiversity loss, deforestation, energy security, food security, greenhouse gas emissions, land use change, rural development, water consumption, and other socioeconomic issues. It has a wide geographical focus accommodating examples from countries in Africa, America, and Asia. As such, this book will become an indispensable companion for academics, practitioners, and policy makers who wish to know more about biofuel issues in the developing world."@en ;
