  author={Frick Bernd and Guido A. Reinhardt and J. Malavelle and Andr{\'e} Faaij and Jan van Eijck and Floor van der Hilst and Batidzirai Batidzirai and Uwe R. Fritsche},
The Global Environment Facility (GEF) aims to set clear policies and priorities for future work and investments in biofuel related projects and to provide guidance to countries on how to select sustainable biofuel projects. Three UN agencies, UNEP, UNIDO and FAO, in collaboration with three research institutions have worked together to prepare this report, with the aim to develop a Biofuels Screening Toolkit, that can be used by the GEF and/or other actors to address sustainability issues… 
Strategy Elements for a Sustainable Bioenergy Policy Based on Scenarios and Systems Modeling: Germany as Example
Bioenergy is an important renewable energy carrier with uncertainties in future development due to sustainability issues. Its further development requires a robust bioenergy strategy on a national
Powering Mali with sustainable biofuels? : livelihood opportunities and policy challenges of Jatropha curcas
Biofuel investments have been fostered as an attempt to mediate the energy crisis and climate change, and as a way to assist rural development. Great hopes have been pinned on the oilbearing,
Promoting the Bioelectricity Sector at the Regional Level: an Impact Analysis of Energy Tax Policy
The development of bioenergy, as a new business model integrated with environment and territory, may be a valuable opportunity for farmers with positive effects both in socio-economic and
GHG emissions and other environmental impacts of indirect land use change mitigation
The implementation of measures to increase productivity and resource efficiency in food and bioenergy chains as well as to more sustainably manage land use can significantly increase the biofuel


Sustainability of bioenergy chains: the result is in the details
This thesis investigated how the feasibility and sustainability of large-scale bioenergy production, supply and use for local use or trade can be determined ex ante on a regional level, taking into
Biofuels and Food Security: Implications of an Accelerated Biofuels Production
Biofuels development has received increased attention in recent times as a means to mitigate climate change, alleviate global energy concerns and foster rural development. Its perceived importance in
Global Assessment of Biomass and Bioproduct Impacts on Socio-economics and Sustainability
Special focus of the internal meeting was placed on the Global-Bio-Pact Set of Socio-Economic Impact Indicators. This set presents a source of information for policy makers and stakeholders involved
Impacts of the EU biofuel target on agricultural markets and land use: a comparative modelling assessment
The Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC) requires that 20% of the EU's energy needs should come from renewable sources by 2020, and includes a target for the transport sector of 10% from biofuels.
Life cycle assessment of selected future energy crops for Europe
If saving GHG emissions is given the highest environmental priority, combined heat and power generation from herbaceous lignocellulosic crops is the most efficient option in terms of land use, provided that the biomass is cultivated on surplus agricultural land, thus avoiding indirect land-use change.
The Power of Bioenergy‐Related Standards to Protect Biodiversity
Although the EU directive, with its bonus system for the use of degraded land and a subquota system for noncrop biofuels, offered the most robust standards to mitigate potential negative effects, all of the standards fell short in promoting agricultural practices with low negative impacts on biodiversity.
