The demand for biofuels is expected to increase significantly in the coming years. However, there are major concerns on the impact of increased biofuel production on food security. As biofuel affects food security in various ways, it is important to assess the impacts on the four pillars of food security, availability, access, utilisation and stabi...

... As a particular case, a Ghana case study on the distribution of food security impacts of biofuels shows that biofuel impacts on all four pillars of food security on household level are projected to negatively affect food prices and imports. This potential effect imposes caution regarding decision on the country biofuel production which should be made in the context of other developments (Brinkman et al. 2020). ...
... • Water source: groundwater or surface • Resource availability • Separation of water source and the demand side (the longer the separation is, the more energy is needed for extraction) • Distribution technology type (pipeline, canal, or water tank) • Water losses via evaporation and leakage (the higher the losses are, the more water is needed for extraction) [18]. ...
... Long-term projections by United Nations [1], OECD [2], and European Commission [3] suggest that the current trends of the increasing global population, as well as economic growth and development, will have serious impacts on natural resources and the ecosystem, unless policy changes deviate the current path of development. As McCormick and Kautto [4] state, current societal and environmental changes should be responded inter alia by redirecting the economy from the use of fossil fuels to biomass. ...
