"Due to its climate, sub-Saharan
Africa shows long-term potential
for biofuels production. It has
many countries with a tropical climate, vast arable land, a large workforce and a strategic location relatively close to the fuel-hungry European markets. There is also a plethora of socioeconomic issues—including HIV, extreme poverty,
rising inflation, lack of infrastructure and rampant unemployment—that these developing countries must address in order to improve the lives of the majority of their citizens and compete favorably in the global market.
Can the potential of biofuel production in this region be sustainably unlocked and help alleviate some of these socioeconomic issues?"
This is the beginning of page 26 of a study done by the "Accenture" - the full report can be read here:
It states (finally!) exactly the same thing that the Industries for Africa Foundation is talking about and working for - but: they are only reporting about the situation, not doing anything about it!
I would like to invite you to read the report and discuss the issue further.
