Introduction: The depletion of fossil fuels is a global issue; likewise, the pursuit of national energy security through reducing dependence on certain countries (e.g. those belonging to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) cannot be decoupled from international relations and globalization. While some experts argue that in many developing countries, biofuels provide an opportunity to address poverty and energy issues (Johnson et al., 2009), others note that challenges such as food security could be exacerbated by the expansion of biofuel production (Drexler, 2008).
