Title of the thesis:Impact of biofuel production on food security
Summary:VIERIKOVÁ, Dominika: Impact of biofuel production on food security: diploma thesis – Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra. Faculty of economics and management; Department of Economics Policy. – doc. Ing. Miroslava Rajčániová, PhD. – Nitra: FEM SUA, 2019. 61 p. The aim of the diploma thesis is the impact of biofuel production on food security. In the theoretical background we defined the concept of biofuels, as well their origin, processing and their importance for alternative energy. The work further clarifies the concept and importance of food security and informs about the impact of biofuel production on food security. Biofuels development has received increased attention in recent times as a means to mitigate climate change, alleviate global energy concerns and foster rural development. Its perceived importance in these three areas has seen biofuels feature prominently on the international agenda. Nevertheless, the rapid growth of biofuels production has raised many concerns among experts worldwide, in particular with regard to sustainability issues and the threat posed to food security. We need to ensure that policies promoting biofuels are consistent with maintaining food security. Analysis of possible impacts of biofuels production on food security is of crucial importance. The last part of the thesis deals with the analysis of the impact of biofuel production on food safety by means of selected indicators of food safety. Using the statistical method of regression and correlation analysis, we examine the relationship between selected indicators and compare the development of these indicators. At the end, we evaluate the results of each analysis and provide an opinion on the defined goal.
Key words:bioethanol, biodiesel, food security, linear regression, biofuels
