The Global Bioeconomy – Preliminary Stocktake of G20 Strategies and Practices

With 100% of the economy being dependent on nature, the way we choose to define our economies going forward will tip the scales towards either an equitable nature-positive future, or an irreversible nature-negative one – with devastating impacts for people and the planet.

The ‘bioeconomy’ encompasses a wide scope, from sustainable agriculture, fishing, forestry and aquaculture, to food and feed manufacturing, bio-based tech, products, and bioenergy. How the world’s largest economies choose to embrace and champion a bioeconomy will determine if we get to see a positive future for climate, nature, and people.

The bioeconomy is distinct in that it includes the fusion of bio and tech, whilst including classical nature investment opportunities.

And, if we look at the economy through a bioeconomy lens, we can see a potential broad investment landscape into both nature conservation and cutting edge tech; perhaps providing a foot into the next set of market and livelihood opportunities.

A new Global Stocktake launched by NatureFinance and FGV-CES, with the support of dozens civil society organisations – including the Igarapé Institute – illustrates that even with some overlaps and differences all G20 members are already advancing a bioeconomy strategy and practices.
