Optimizing the global environmental benefits of transport biofuels

 This report identifies and evaluates necessary conditions for the GEF's support of biofuel projects, and provides recommendations to the GEF Partnership. It outlines a strategic framework for supporting the supply of sustainable biofuels at scales that are significant to the global climate. It reconciles energy and food security challenges with local developmental needs and aspirations. Finally, it evaluates the growing controversy surrounding the sustainable production of biofuels and land-use competition. Overall, the GEF could help reduce the risks and costs for biofuel production, promote a faster transition to commercial viability, develop the market and regulatory conditions for promoting sustainable biofuel technologies and enable the positive development of biofuels as a climate mitigation option.
