DfT Report: Regional Level Actions to Avoid ILUC

Jun 28, 2011

The increasing use of biofuels internationally introduces the risk that crops grown for biofuel use on existing farmland displace crops grown for other uses, increasing the pressure to clear new land for agriculture. This knock-on effect is known as Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC).

This report, authored by Ecometrica and commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT), considers the potential to reduce the risk of ILUC by actions taken at a regional level, for example by a region with a country, a national government or an international body such as the European Union.
