Objectifs
The primary objective of the study was to understand sectoral as well as economy-wide costs and benefits of biofuels to help policy makers decide whether or not production of biofuels should be continued and/or expanded. The competitiveness of biofuels with fossil fuels in countries which are land-locked and fully dependant on imports for their petroleum supply (e.g., Mali, Nepal, Zambia and Zimbabwe) are better understood. Since the study helps understand whether or not future development of biofuels would be beneficial to the country from both private and public perspective, the results could be useful to design biofuel policies and strategies in these countries plus other countries with similar energy and agriculture production systems.
