"Food–feed–biofuel trilemma: Biotechnological innovation policy for sustainable development"
by Das, Gouranga

With climate change endangering environmental sustainability, and food–biofuel competition still looming large, the pursuit of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) requires balancing this trade-off. By highlighting the role of current-vintage agro-fuel technology in combating twin crisis, we calibrate a 23 regions-24 sectors Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model to enumerate the impacts of: [i] 10% biotechnological invention in maize grains, rice and wheat; [ii] productivity growth in new agro-chemical inputs; [iii] impact of next generation biofuel technology (5% productivity shock). The results confirm that investing in factors for adoption of third-generation biofuels could be significant policy response for mitigating the adverse impacts.
