BioPower

BioPower =

Empower the dryland poor to benefit from the bio-energy revolution

Seeking Pro-Poor Benefits

• Food-fuel win-wins

• Increase incomes

• Sustain/improve environments

How?

1. Biofuel crops that the poor can grow

2. Crops that produce food, feed and fuel

3. Increase productivity so food rides the biofuel wave

4. Pro-poor, income-boosting feedstock supply chains

5. Non-food biofuel crops that grow in wastelands

6. Use bio-energy crops to improve soil and land

1. Biofuel crops that

the poor can grow

Jatropha for biodiesel

2. Crops that produce food, feed and fuel

3. Increase productivity so food rides the biofuel wave

From Volume, to Value

4. Pro-poor, income-boosting feedstock supply chains

Pongamia for biodiesel – women profit from seedling nurseries

Bioethanol processing

5. Non-food biofuel crops that grow in wastelands

6. Use bio-energy crops to improve soil and land

Degraded laterite

Nutrient and water-poor sandy soils

Integrate fuelwood into

farming systems – rehabilitate land, reduce

1. Increase rural bio-energy

self-reliance

and income

2. Alleviate poverty through pro-poor biofuel

markets

3. Bio-energy
