Sustainable biofuels have an important role to play in Africa’s development. When biofuels such as biodiesel and bioethanol are produced and used in a sustainable way, they provide massive economic and environmental benefits. These include, for example, job creation, modern energy access, reduced pollution and climate change mitigation. They also provide a buffer against vulnerability to volatile fossil fuel prices. A solution of this kind can promote rural development by increasing the income of small farmers and improving agricultural productivity.
