The need to establish the link between land tenure and food security is increasingly gaining currency as governments and development organizations refocus their effort towards assisting farmers to move away from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture.

It identifies potential biofuel feedstocks as crucial elements for establishing a viable industry.
