The new competition for land: Food, energy, and climate change

The new competition for land: Food, energy, and climate change | Energy, water and food security | Scoop.it

This paper discusses the competition for land resources and the issue of land-use change due to the rising demand for food and energy, specifically for the transport sector. The linkages between land, food, and energy become particularly complex within the context of climate change. This is not only because agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, but also because climate change itself can alter the productivity and availability of land.
