The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance is pleased to announce that six new organisations have joined its work to place nature and people at the heart of a global circular bioeconomy.
The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance (CBA) was established by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 2020. The Alliance aims to accelerate the transition to a circular bioeconomy that is climate neutral, inclusive and prospers in harmony with nature, by providing knowledge-informed support and a learning and networking platform. It connects the dots between investors, companies, local communities, governmental and non-governmental organizations to advance the circular bioeconomy – while also restoring biodiversity.
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.
Current activities include forest landscape restoration and agroforestry projects in Africa, Europe, South America and Asia. The CBA is building a global network of Living Labs for Nature, People and Planet which catalyze action on the ground and demonstrate how harmony can be achieved by empowering nature and people.
The Alliance is facilitated by a Secretariat hosted by the European Forest Institute. For more information please contact:
