Promoting a socially just and environmentally sustainable Bio-Economy

The newly launched website (www.bio-economy.org.za) of the South African Research Chair in the Environmental and Social Dimensions of the Bio-economy provides a platform for researchers, policy-makers and students to engage with and learn more about approaches within the bio-economy that facilitate poverty reduction in a manner that is socially just and environmentally sustainable.

Publications and other information on the site is arranged according to the following five themes: governance and rights; biodiversity use and trade; seed and knowledge; access and benefit sharing; and the impacts of emerging technologies. Should you be interested in future collaboration or learning more about current projects, feel free to browse the site or get in touch via info@bio-economy.org.za
