Building Sustainable, Resilient and Thriving Rural Places

The Rural Agenda for Climate Action: Leveraging Climate and Circular Bio-Economy Opportunities in Rural Areas

Sep 28, 2022 | 3:45 PM - 5:15 PM



The bio-economy produces and converts renewable biological resources and waste streams into value-added products, such as food, feed, bio-based products as well as bioenergy. It has the potential to reduce carbon emissions and support the sequestration of carbon in soils, biomass and, ultimately, bio-based products. The circular bio economy aims to transition from our current, linear, economic system to a more sustainable production and consumption model that has the potential to address food loss and waste; biodiversity loss; climate change; land use change and resource scarcity. This session will discuss policies and initiatives to help overcome challenges and implement strategies that leverage the circular and bio-economy.
