Report on lessons learned jatropha for local development

The report with the lessons learned from the first three pilot projects from FACT in Mali, Mozambique and Honduras, is finished.
The main conclusion is  that there are possibilities for jatropha cultivation-processing and applications, especially in sub sahel countries in Africa, with small farmers as producers, however under specific circumstances.
Furthermore all components of the whole development chain can be improved considerably, giving  a better economy.
In agricultural developed countries like Honduras, jatropha production is not economically attractive compared to other cash crops cultivated.
The report has been placed on the FACT website, but can be reached with this link:
