This paper explores current thinking on the impacts of bioenergy on food security and investigate how this debate is framed, including underlying assumptions and limitations. In addition to scoping the international debate this study will, where possible, draw on examples from Tanzania, Kenya, India and Sri Lanka to maximise relevance to the work being undertaken by the PISCES consortium. In doing so, this study will include recommendations on areas for further study and collaboration with on-going initiatives. Finally, this paper will provide the consortium with an initial overview of approaches for integrating food security into the wider PISCES research agenda.
