Rural Bioeconomy Portal
This portal forms part of the work of the ENRD Thematic Group on ‘Mainstreaming the Bioeconomy’ and focuses on the challenges and opportunities for bioeconomy in rural areas.
The ENRD Seminar 'Bioeconomy: seizing the opportunity for rural Europe' (Brussels, 3 July 2019) was an opportunity to share practical experiences of rural bioeconomy and discuss the use of RDPs and CAP Strategic Plans to support rural bioeconomy value chains.
Three new briefings on bioeconomy offer an overview of policy and tools supporting the bioeconomy in rural areas, provide recommendations on the use of RDPs and future Strategic Plans, and explore the role of awareness-raising and communications in mainstreaming the bioeconomy.
Innovative and resource-eﬃcient bioeconomy can oﬀer economic opportunities to producers and enterprises in rural areas while preserving biodiversity and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
