This news item relates to the EFI-led initiative which ran from 2020 to September 2023

The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance is pleased to announce that five new organisations have joined its work to place nature and people at the heart of a global circular bioeconomy.

The new members include: Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS Network), International Rescue Committee, Lifescaped, Pachamama, United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance (CBA) was established by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 2020. The CBA is an action-oriented partnership that connects the dots between investors, companies, governmental and non-governmental organizations and local communities to advance the circular bioeconomy on the ground while restoring biodiversity globally.

The CBA’s activities include its global network of Living Labs for Nature, People and Planet which use landscape restoration projects as the starting point to catalyse the development of circular bioeconomy value chains while restoring biodiversity and local livelihoods.

The diversity of new members reflects the nature of the Alliance, which includes large and small intergovernmental organizations, companies, investors, research organizations and NGOs, who provide expertise and implement projects in areas related to the circular bioeconomy.
