HAVE WE DELIVERED?

POLICY AREA BIOECONOMY Policy Area Bioeconomy includes agriculture, fisheries and aquaculture, forestry and rural development. This policy area has defined five focus areas for the strategic development of bioeconomy in the region: Bioeconomy policy; Bio-based Business; Research, Development and Innovation; Civil Society and Communication. One of the PA Bioeconomy initiatives is a forum for policy dialog, called the BSR Bioeconomy Council, with participation from all the countries in the Baltic Sea region and several NGOs and bioeconomy-related organisations. The Council has functioned mainly as a reference group for the Policy Area, but has also produced valuable contributions of its own. A good example here is guidelines “Sustainability Criteria for Bioeconomy” published in November 2017. Another example of success stories are the networks of Managing Authorities of both agricultural and rural development (EAFRD) and fisheries (EMFF). These networks
