    Author : Tessa Van Duijvenbode; [2016]
    Keywords : Human Ecology; biofuel; coconut; copra; alternative energy; electrification; dependency; Pacific; power; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to identify the current social power relations in the Pacific in order to anticipate for a possible regional shift to the use of coconut biofuel as an alternative to the use of fossil fuels for energy production. A proposed multi-national and multi-actor project by the Economic Development Division of the regional development aid agency Pacific Community (SPC), suggests that such a shift can bring about: the alleviation of Pacific Island Countries and Territories’ exuberant annual spending on fuel imports and increase economic development for rural Pacific islanders who are to participate in the production of the necessary natural resources.
