G8 points towards bioenergy to increase food production

In its final declaration from the recently held Agriculture Ministers meeting in Csion di Valmarino, Italy, the G8 acknowledged the need for development of agriculture in order to meet increasing demand for food.

In order to achieve this the G8 mentions bioenergy as an important driver for “sustainable economic growth” as long as food security is not compromised. 

- G8’s message is that bioenergy production is an important factor for not only the development of the world’s food production but also to meet increasing demands for effective climate mitigation as well as for energy, says Kent Nyström, Interim President of World Bioenergy Association.
