dc.description.abstractBiofuels are receiving the attention of policy makers of energy-deficient nations as a means to enhance energy security and reduce carbon emissions. Economy-wide impacts of allocating vast amounts of agricultural resources for energy crop production are not well understood. This paper assesses the economy-wide impacts of growing biodiesel crops to meet 20% blending target set in the biofuel policy of India. The results show that biodiesel can generate 0.7%–1.0% one-time incremental growth in India’s economy with significant employment generation in rural areas, without adverse effects on the other sectors of the economy.

    The South Asia Working Paper Series of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) is a forum for ongoing and recently completed research and policy studies undertaken in ADB or on its behalf. The series is a knowledge product that replaces the South Asia Economic Report and South Asia Occasional Paper Series. It is meant to enhance greater understanding of current important economic and development issues in South Asia, promote policy dialogue among stakeholders, and facilitate reforms and development management. The ADB south Asia Working Paper Series, maintained by the South Asia Department of ADB, is a quick-disseminating, informal publication whose titles could subsequently be revised for publication as articles in professional journals or chapters in books.
