Developing bioenergy a win-win appproach that can serve the poor: bioenergy and agriculture promises and challenges


  • Hazell, P.B.R.


"The promise of bioenergy is that it may help cope with rising energy prices, address environmental concerns about greenhouse gas emissions, and offer new income and employment to farmers and rural areas. In principle, there is a high degree of congruency between these three objectives for bioenergy production and the poverty reduction targets embodied in the Millennium Development Goals... To ensure better outcomes, the public sector has important roles to play: growing the industry; benefiting the poor; Benefiting the environment; and Developing cost effective methods." from Text
