Hello Patrick, The link does not work, do you have the correct link? On the project are there any local native sugar producing plants that could be used instead of importing a plant into big plantations

Would there be a case for encouraging Madagascar to use not sugar cane for this but Sugar Palm? see this link to the restoration of Rainforest in Borneo http://www.ted.com/talks/willie_smits_restores_a_rainforest.htm. The energy for the project comes from sugar palm which is much better producer of syrup it seems.
