Abstract: This policy paper discusses biofuels from energy crops. The paper starts with policy recommendations. It then provides some background on Cordaid’s work on the issue, an introduction to the concept of biofuels and an overview of the policy context at the global and regional levels. Looking at the different agricultural and energy situations in developing countries across Asia, Latin America and Africa, the paper finally discusses different models of production for energy crops and their implications for the vision of small producer agriculture that Cordaid supports with its programmes and advocacy.
