A one-day workshop convening a group of experts to consider three topics: the broad question of the optimal use of land to meet deep decarbonization targets; the focused question of aviation and heavy-duty transportation sector, where many analysts foresee especially pressing need for low carbon liquid fuels; and to reflect on lessons learned from the last decade of experience with indirect land use change in biofuel policies—such as the competition between using lands used for carbon sequestration for production of food, fiber, and biofuels. The organizers intend to author a perspective type article based on the workshop discussion and to inform stakeholders—policymakers, investors, non-governmental and philanthropic institutions—about key opportunities and challenges in developing the next generation bioeconomy.
