Understanding bioenergy conflicts: case of a jatropha project in Kenya's Tana Delta

Under the theme "Forests, competitiveness and sustainable landscapes", the Third Latin American IUFRO Congress was held in Costa Rica from 12-15 June 2013, gathering around 350 scientists. A poster entitled "Understanding bioenergy conflicts: case of a jatropha project inKenya's Tana Delta"  (Arevalo, J., Ochieng, R., Mola-Yudego, B. & Gritten, D.) was presented, prompting numerous comments and feedback from congress participants. Notwithstanding, Latin America has also experienced -similarly as sub-Saharan Africa- important bioenergy developments, many of which have been associated to deforestation and forest conflicts. A list of all congress contributions as well as the keynote presentations can be found at the congress website.
