Abstract: This publication discusses the role of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in biofuel development in the Mekong Region. The ADB promotes biofuel development in the Mekong Region through its Rural Renewable Energy initiative (RRE). The overall goal of the RRE initiative is to "further reduce poverty, enhance food security, and improve welfare through greater access to energy in the rural areas." However, the reality as it currently occurs in the region is that there are too many worrisome issues arising that are in conflict with the Bank’s expectations.
