Dear HLPE Secretariat
Please find attached comments from the Climate Change, Energy and Tenure team on V0 of the HLPE report on Biofuels and Food Security.
We have divided our submission in two parts. The first section includes overall comments on the document and structure and the second part includes working level detailed comments on each section.
Generally there seems to be lack of cohesion across the document with the recommendation section presenting more balanced views and the rest of the document being written in a more negative and less substantiated fashion. We strongly suggest structural and technical revisions of this document.
