Abstract

This edited volume examines bioenergy and bioenergy-related national legislation, policy and institutions in selected countries in Latin America, Asia and Africa, namely: Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Mexico, Tanzania, Thailand and the Philippines. It identifies current state practice in ensuring the economic, social and environmental sustainability of bioenergy production ? a topical issue in current debates on climate change mitigation, soaring food prices, international trade and rural development. The study proves the need for holistic policy, legal and institutional frameworks in a variety of relevant sectors, including the environment, forestry, water management, land and trade, as well as for an interdisciplinary approach to designing the regulatory features of any bioenergy programme.
