000014493 520__ $$aDuring the past several years, biofuels in rich countries have come to  be regarded as an important option for reducing consumption of  petroleum, which is a main policy goal as a result of recent high oil  prices, energy security concerns, and global climate change. The use and  development of alternative sources of energy are increasingly  encouraged in western countries, and private and public sources of  financial support for biofuels development have increased greatly.  For  African countries, this is leading to growing interest from western and  Asian private investors in biofuels projects, as well as growing support  from development partners for incorporating biofuels into government  policies and development plans.  For African countries which are non-oil  producers, biofuel production has the potential to provide a substitute  for costly oil imports which are one of the major uses of foreign  exchange and sources of inflation in African economies, and to provide a  new source of agricultural income in rural areas. Tanzania is one of  the African countries which have seen a rapid increase in biofuel  production and investment proposals during the past several years.  The  purpose of this report is to describe existing patterns of biofuel  development and crop cultivation in Tanzanian rural areas in order to  improve the understanding of how these various potential threats and  opportunities from biofuels expansion are playing out in reality.
