    The most suitable biofuel crop under the agro-ecological conditions of Samoa was determined. Secondary and primary data on the status of the agricultural sector of Samoa, and its soil and climate and socio-economic conditions were gathered from Agrometeorological Station, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Natural Resources, Pacific Islands Greenhouse Gas Abatement Through Renewable Energy Project, University of South Pacific, Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Labor, Food and Agricu lture Organization, and from the farmer’s and business group.

    Soaring energy consumption and fossil fuel prices, increasing greenhouse gas emissions and concerns over energy import dependence are driving the search for alternatives to fossil fuels for energy production. Biofuels currently constitute the largest source of renewable energy produced on earth. As biomass, wood offers some of the highest levels of energy and carbon ef?ciency. This publication explores the relationship between forests and energy. It considers the present and future contribution of wood in the production of bioenergy as well as the effects of liquid biofuel crop development on forests. The paper begins with an overview of global energy supply and demand with projections to the year 2030. The contribution of wood energy is then considered in the context of a general discussion of a variety of bioenergy crops and their use in the production of ?rst- and second-generation biofuels. The analysis evaluates the payoffs in developing different sources of bioenergy and the risk s of land conversion. It also discusses market forces and ongoing technological innovations for wood energy production. Policy options and recommendations for bioenergy development are given, stressing the importance of integrated planning and monitoring of land use, and the transfer of advanced wood energy technologies to developing countries. This publication will be useful to both specialized and general audiences interested in learning more about the role of forests in energy production.
