Biofuels have been represented by some as a silver bullet to the
climate change threat, and by others as a fatal mistake set to
destroy forests and increase hunger; they are neither. Sane and
sensibly developed they offer a chance to reduce emissions,
generate employment and diversify rural livelihoods. But widespread
commercialisation without proper sustainability standards could
prove a disaster, causing more environmental and human harm than
good. This new WBGU report shows that a sustainable use of
bioenergy is possible and outlines how opportunities can be
exploited while at the same time minimizing risks. This large and
detailed report examines the issues surrounding bioenergy from a
global perspective and demonstrates how the sustainable use of
bioenergy can help minimize risks to food security, nature
conservation and climate change. .
