What is Bioeconomy?
Bioeconomy is the sustainable and innovative use of renewable resources to provide food, feed and industrial products with enhanced properties. Besides economic growth the bioeconomy aims for food security, climate protection and conservation of scarce natural resources. In the past five years alone, the essential objectives of the bioeconomy have been incorporated in the strategic activities of more than 30 countries. The EU and the OECD have made their own important contributions at the international level, including providing support for intra-regional cooperation. The FAO was recently mandated to develop an international policy framework for bioeconomy.
