Laura Sullivan  is our guest this week. She is responsible for the European policy and Campaigns in Brussels for ActionAid International. On the occasion of her participation to the Brussels Development Briefing on food crisis in ACP countries, Ms Sullivan explained her views on the subject, on the role of women and the small-scale farmers and the need to invest in their empowerment. She also touches upon trade policies and liberalisation approaches not always compatible with development.

According to a recent French research, existing studies on the impact of biofuels on greenhouse gas emissions are not sufficiently consistent to serve as a basis for policy making, as percentages of a biofuel's negative or positive impact vary a lot depending on factors such as the crop and zone of production. The research, compiled by French environmental consultancy BeCitizen external, analysed existing methodologies to calculate the impact of indirect land use change on greenhouse gas emissions, and highlights major discrepancies when they are applied to different biofuel production processes. As a result, more in-depth studies are necessary to develop a robust methodology for calculating indirect land-use change caused by EU biofuel production, concluded the review, and it would therefore be "risky" to use current methods as a basis for policy making.
