An Institutional Analysis of Biofuel Policies and their Social Implications
Lessons from Brazil, India and Indonesia
This paper sets out to examine how different developing countries have attempted to promote rural development through biofuel production, what social outcomes those strategies have created, and what lessons can be learned, such as in terms of biofuel policy design. This is done through a comparative analysis of the contexts of Brazil, India and Indonesia; three countries with important agricultural sectors that have put large-scale biofuel programs in place.
