Biofuels can be a menace for water resources
At the same conference, the Comisión Económica para América Latina (Latin American Economic Commission) said that some of the plans designed to help poor countries to develop a biofuel industry are against the reality of water shortage, such as the case of Perú (a country that surely has other issues to worry about now).
Other experts claimed as well against other side effects of this new intensive agriculture: land concentration into a few hands, leaving poor farmers out of business; deforestation and use of pesticides which can damage human health.
