Abstract: Industrial biofuels – fuels made on an industrial scale from agricultural crops – have been put forward as an answer to energy security, climate change and rural development. ActionAid believes they are unlikely to be the solution to any of these challenges. This report examines the connections between biofuels and hunger, particularly and the extent to which the right to food is being undermined by industrial biofuels.
