Biofuels Policy: From volume to GHG reductions

Wednesday, March 11

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

There is a shift in the way biofuel policies are developed and implemented. While early programs focused on blending targets, more recently the concept of CO2 reduction has taken center stage. How do these policies work and how effective are they? What are the advantages of the competing schemes? Is there an optimal policy to achieve climate goals without compromising food security?
