Economic and Environmental Impacts of Biofuels: Implications for Land Use and Policy

This group expects to create a comprehensive framework to analyze the socioeconomic, biophysical, and environmental impacts of biofuel production at an economy-wide level, while incorporating detailed spatial heterogeneity at a local and regional scale. This framework will have the flexibility to be modified as new knowledge and insights emerge from the field and laboratory studies. The analysis will provide policy makers and analysts with a scientific basis and a methodology to analyze the impacts of a range of public policies, including gasoline taxes, biofuel subsidies, carbon payments, and reduction in tariffs on imported biofuels.
