Jatropha as a source of locally produced biofuel

Jatropha, a plant well adapted to Malian conditions, is widespread and used as a living hedge between fields.
Traditionally used to make soap, jatropha can also be pressed to give oil and press cake (which can be used as organic fertiliser).
To address this Malian environmental situation a fast growing local plant that can survive the harsh climate and which can be used to combat desertification is needed.
Jatropha, well known in rural Mali, surviving on less than 400mm rainfall per year and resistant to drought and pests, can be used for replanting degraded land and can play an important role in fighting drought & desertification
