Governing Sustainable Biofuels: Markets, Certification, and Technology
The Copenhagen Biofuels Research Network is calling for papers for the 2012 international conference on "Governing Sustainable Biofuels: Markets, Certification, and Technology".
Papers are welcomed in particular related to one of the following areas:
- Effects of standards and sustainability certifications on the biofuel industry in particular in the context of wider governance and regulation processes at national, regional and international levels (including the WTO).
- Impacts of existing investments on trade flows, on the structure of regional and global biofuels industries, as well as on food security, land use, water resources and rural livelihoods.
- Impact of discourses and imaginaries on biofuel innovation, technology development and scaling-up on strategic choices, policies and practices with respect to both first- and next generation biofuels.
