Biofuels and Food Security: CIDSE Inputs on the zero-draft of the HLPE Study, January 2013
CIDSE welcomes the opportunity to feed into the study of the High Level Panel of Experts appointed by the Committee on World Food Security. The discussion on biofuels is timely as many governments ponder how to meet energy needs whilst reducing dependence on oil. Generally the report is impartial and scientifically grounded. The message is abundantly clear and we welcome that the report cites other reports and findings which echo its ultimate conclusion that “biofuels is provoking high and volatile food prices” and therefore compromising food security.
