Please find attached a critique of the Biofuels and Food Security draft report of January 9, 2013. It is emblematic of the analytical weaknesses, biases and narrow scope of the authors that their conclusions, if accepted, result in a proof that no European or Asian or South American biofuels policies or mandates have any impact whatsoever on food security. We attribute this bizarre result to the authors not following the HLPE methodology guidelines, not assembling a literature review, not respecting basic rules of social science analysis, and possessing inadequate technological or industrial context and awareness.
