Global Bioeconomy Summit

2° Global Bioeconomy Summit

Durante el mes de abril se realizó en Berlín el 2º Global Bioeconomy Summit, donde más de 800 líderes y representantes de la industria de 70 países se reunieron para discutir los desafíos y las oportunidades del cambio de la producción industrial no sustentable actual a una bioeconomía sustentable.

Debido a las enorme diferencias regionales en la forma y el foco en que las naciones buscan el cambio hacia la producción de alimento y la industria sustentable, la colaboración internacional y las políticas de mejores prácticas son necesarias para alcanzar el objetivo general de combatir los peligros globales como el cambio climático, la hambruna, la pérdida de biodiversidad y el agotamiento de los recursos naturales o la desigualdad. Un comunicado publicado al cierre del Global Bioeconomy Summit recomienda coordinar la investigación y el desarrollo en bioeconomía, gobernabilidad y el desarrollo de capacidades a nivel internacional para asegurar la puesta en marcha de una “Bioeconomía Sustentable para Todos”.
