Survey on the Risks and Benefits from the Bioeconomy for the SDGs

The Center for Development Research (ZEF) in Bonn (Germany) has recently initiated a 5-year research project on the sustainability of the “Bioeconomy” funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). The project STRIVE (Sustainable Trade and Innovation Transfer in the Bioeconomy) integrates multiple research disciplines to improve the knowledge base for the design of sustainable policies and investments in the Bioeconomy. For details, please visit: http://strive-bioecon.de.

Bioeconomy is the part of the economy that relies on biological resources, products, and principles. It is a new field of research driven by diverse expectations about how bio-based innovation could contribute (or not) to sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Please support the project by providing approximately 5 minutes of your time to help obtain a representative overview of how experts around the world expect key dimensions of the Bioeconomy to affect selected SDG dimensions.
