Abstract

This chapter discusses biofuels, food security and the WTO agreement on agriculture. It is part of a collection which focuses on aspects of agricultural production and trade policy that are recognized for their importance but are often kept out of the limelight, such as the implication of national and international agricultural production and trade policies on national food security, global climate change, and biotechnology.
