"Feed – Food – Fuel: A perspective for Africa"
by Junker, Franziska, Verena Wolf and Martin Banse

Food, feed and fuel are increasingly seen as competitive uses of restricted resources. Concerns about increasing feed and fuel use at the cost of food use continue to be raised. But how much of each crop is in fact used for food, feed and fuel, globally and in African countries? And what is to be expected in the future? The answer to this question is not trivial.
Increasing purchasing power is expected to increase consumption of animal products and hence feed use. Biofuel policies encourage the use of crops for energy purposes. Increasing population will increase the overall need for food. A priori it is unclear which of the three factors will dominate.
Our paper shows how we combine different available data sources into one framework allowing the global analyses of feed, food and fuel use in a straightforward manner. It explains how we expanded the GTAP 8 database by corn and soybeans. Based on this, we elaborate a projection up to 2025. We draw a consistent picture of the importance of feed, food, and fuel use of major cereals and oilseeds today and in the future. To sharpen the analysis, we vary our policy assumption in the area of biofuel consumption and production. Against the background of global developments, we focus our analysis on the outlook for African countries, e.g. Kenya, Ethiopia and Senegal.
