Biofuels in Africa
In 2020, Africa is expected to produce a relatively small but substantial part of the global biofuel demand. Millions of hectares will be turned into large scale biofuel plantations.
Especially natural areas of wetlands and rainforest – the hotspots for biodiversity - are vulnerable for this development.
These are the main outcomes of the study ‘Biofuels in Africa’, an assessment of risks and benefits for African wetlands (see pdf in the right bar to download).
The study is carried out by AIDEnvironment and commissioned by Wetlands International.
Presented at the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 9) in Bonn.
