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.

This portal was launched by the ENRD Thematic Group on ‘Bioeconomy and Climate Action in Rural Areas’. It also links to the work of the Thematic Group on ' European Green Deal and rural areas'. It shares information and examples of sustainable bioeconomy and nature-based solutions in rural areas.
