Abstract

This report reviews current debates, policies and challenges surrounding liquid biofuels in a number of African countries. It provides a global biofuels context and also highlights the situation of energy poverty in Africa before considering what can be gained or lost from developing the biofuels market as a means of meeting domestic energy needs.

This report is organised as follows:

Chapter 1 provides a brief overview of the global context of energy and biofuels and how this is currently affecting Africa.
Chapter 2 presents the risks and opportunities for biofuels development in Africa.
Chapter 3 contains economic and policy drivers of biofuels development and lists how some countries have responded to them.
Chapter 4 picks up some key details of experiences and policy regimes in a range of African and other countries.
Chapter 5 concludes with a summary and recommendations.
