Researchers say biofuel impact analysis must be place-specific

October 29, 2013 |

In Germany, a team of researchers led by the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change says place-specific impacts of biofuel production must be taken into account. They argue that place-specific production models and land tenure regimes mediate livelihood outcomes, which are also in turn affected by global and regional markets and their resulting equilibrium dynamics. The place-specific perspective suggests that distributional consequences are a crucial complement to aggregate outcomes; this has not been given enough weight in comprehensive assessments to date.
