    FAO Members endorsed Bioeconomy for Sustainable Food and Agriculture as one of 20 programme priority areas (PPAs) in FAO’s Strategic Framework for 2022–2031. The bioeconomy PPA is led by the FAO Office of Climate Change, Biodiversity and Environment, and co-led by the FAO Agrifood Economics Division. FAO’s approach to bioeconomy has a special focus on Sustainable Development Goal 12 (responsible consumption and production), in particular on achieving more sustainable natural resource management, less pollution and less waste. It also aims to promote bioeconomy innovations to support food security, rural livelihoods, Indigenous rights, gender and youth empowerment, climate action, and biodiversity and ecosystem restoration.

    Promoting sustainable and circular bioeconomy through agriculture practice in Eastern Europe and Central Asia 2023
    Also available in:

    This report presents an overview of concepts related to bioeconomy and the benefits of their implementation in agriculture and shares agriculture production trends, bioeconomy initiatives and sustainable agriculture approaches from throughout the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region. It provides a canvas for the consideration of potential policies and initiatives that can support the development of sustainable agriculture approaches, adapted to each country, and the promotion of bioeconomy in agriculture practice in the region. Sustainable agriculture approaches – particularly organic production and climate-smart farming – are steadily gaining ground in the region. Bioenergy has significant untapped potential, and agroforestry and pastoralist activities also present important unused opportunities, given the low levels of investment needed for their implementation.
