Biofuels have been represented by some as a silver bullet to the climate change threat, and by others as a fatal mistake set to destroy forests and increase hunger; they are neither. Sane and sensibly developed they offer a chance to reduce emissions, generate employment and diversify rural livelihoods. But widespread commercialisation without proper sustainability standards could prove a disaster, causing more environmental and human harm than good. This new WBGU report shows that a sustainable use of bioenergy is possible and outlines how opportunities can be exploited while at the same time minimizing risks.

This large and detailed report examines the issues surrounding bioenergy from a global perspective and demonstrates how the sustainable use of bioenergy can help minimize risks to food security, nature conservation and climate change.

Five stars.' En-Agri '...anybody interested in the future of the human race should read this volume.' Green Energy Magazine 'I liked this book because it is a multi-disciplinary approach to the problem...it gives an overview of the bioenergy and land use questions from the point of view of a large range of specialists related to this issue.' Nicolas Marron, Annals of Forest Science. '...the book provides an excellent resource for those working in this area and for students of environmental technology, in addition to providing thought-provoking material for policy makers.' Elaine Booth, Experimental Agriculture 'this large and detailed report examines the issues surrounding bioenergy from a global perspective and demonstrates how the sustainable use of bioenergy can help minimize risks to food security, nature conservation and climate change.'
