The role of bioenergy in energy-food-ecosystem nexus in Asia
This research revealed significant trade-offs among energy security, food security and ecosystem capacity in the Philippines, India and China. The preferred role of bioenergy for sustainable development reflects the social and economic concerns in the respective Asian countries, e.g. energy security and environmental condition in China, food security in India, and ecosystem degradation in the Philippines. Thus, policy should carefully weigh the impacts of bioenergy development on sustainability issues that are closely interlinked in an energy-food-ecosystem nexus.
