Food or fuel? How the EU impacts on global land use
Brown Bag Talk with Ruth Delzeit, Head of the Research Group Land-Use Change, Department for Environmental Science, University of Basel.
The Renewable Energies Directive supports the consumption of biofuels in the EU. Biofuels are produced from arable crops, among other things. Against the background of rising food prices, this practice is being questioned. What impact does this policy have on food prices? Where do arable crops come from and how do planned import restrictions on palm and soybean oil affect land use and prices
