Abstract
Economies in Transition (EiTs) exemplified by countries such as Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova etc. face many socio-economic and environmental challenges – energy security, high unemployment, poor transportation and municipal service infrastructure, and rural depopulation are common themes. Agricultural biofuel production offers a number of socio-economic co-benefits that can contribute to the alleviation of such challenges, particularly in rural areas, but there are significant barriers to establishment of large scale plantings in most countries. With a point of departure in coherent co-benefit strategies that have been demonstrated to some extent in Western and Northern Europe, this paper extends their relevance to the social and... (More)
Economies in Transition (EiTs) exemplified by countries such as Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova etc. face many socio-economic and environmental challenges – energy security, high unemployment, poor transportation and municipal service infrastructure, and rural depopulation are common themes. Agricultural biofuel production offers a number of socio-economic co-benefits that can contribute to the alleviation of such challenges, particularly in rural areas, but there are significant barriers to establishment of large scale plantings in most countries. With a point of departure in coherent co-benefit strategies that have been demonstrated to some extent in Western and Northern Europe, this paper extends their relevance to the social and economic situation in EiTs. It examines a number of strategies for how agro-biofuel co-benefits might be leveraged to provide both the stimulus required for large scale plantings and tangible flow-on socio-economic benefits. The discussion presents a series of areas where a new industry based on biomass energy carrier production can provide a range of co-benefits of importance. However, it is also noted that large scale modern agriculture – including biofuel agriculture – can have drawbacks that do need to be carefully monitored. (Less)
