Abstract: This information sheet discusses the process “Fuelling knowledge on the social and ecological impacts of agrofuel production”. Within the framework of the Development Policy Review Network (DPRN), a group of Dutch nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and research institutes established the Agrofuels Platform to promote a discussion on the social and ecological effects of agrofuel production and the resulting policy dilemma’s. The platform aimed to: 1) provide an overview of the available scientific knowledge; 2) analyse the perspectives (and associated assumptions and underlying motives) of various stakeholders; and 3) bring policymakers, NGOs and researchers together to debate the effects of agrofuel production and the appropriate policy responses.
