The challenges of biofuels for the farming community in Mali

Les enjeux des agrocarburants pour le monde paysan au Mali

Controversy rages over biofuels! Rising farm produce prices and the associated food crises, competing land uses, environmental impacts and uneven results as regards the climate are amongst the reasons why a degree of suspicion is justified concerning the development of biofuels in the South. The first part of this document presents the results of local consultations, while the second reports back on the exchanges between participants at a national workshop organized in Bamako in May 2009.
