The bioeconomy encompasses sectors, systems, associated services and investments to conserve, produce, regenerate, use, process, distribute or consume biological resources including ecosystem services. Bioeconomy allows economic and social value to be added to biological resources, providing sustainable solutions in and across all economic sectors in a sustainable, renewable, and circular manner.
The bioeconomy considers our use of biological resources in a holistic way, supporting food and nutrition security, mitigating, and adapting to climate change, reducing dependence on non-renewable unsustainable resources, managing natural resources sustainably and strengthening competitiveness, creating jobs, and supporting a just transition.
The National Bioeconomy Action Plan 2023-2025 will include a list of actions and measures, which will further support the implementation of the National Policy Statement on the Bioeconomy, placing Ireland on the road to achieving the national vision, principles and strategic objectives for the bioeconomy. The Action Plan will be the main implementation tool for the National Policy Statement in the short term.
The aim of this consultation is to gather stakeholder feedback to inform aspects of the Action Plan, ensuring it is effective and achievable. We have included some questions for consideration in the Consultation and Discussion document.
