The ERA ARD Southern Advisory Group’s study on Regional Evidence Generation and Policy and Institutional Mapping on Food and Biofuel for the Africa, Asia and Latin American regions aims to better understand the current initiatives on food and bioenergy and their consequent effects on food availability and livelihood opportunities to smallholder farmers in developing regions. Generating evidences on the impact of converting food crop areas into bioenergy and mapping policies and institutional initiative in support of pro-poor bio energy programs of developing economies are the two major components of the study. Study results are viewed as crucial policy inputs to regional planning and are to be translated into popular documents for enhanced knowledge sharing.
