[biofuelwatch] Cameroon's large-scale Land-grabs

No one should believe that these land gabbers are there to feed starving Cameroons, create jobs or improve food security … These agreements – many of which could be in place for 99 years – do not mean progress for local people and will not lead to food in their stomachs. These deals lead only to dollars in the pockets of corrupt leaders and foreign investors. The scale of the land deals being struck is shocking. The conversion of Cameroonian small farms and forests into a natural-asset-based, high-return investment strategy can drive up food prices and increase the risks of climate change.

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.
