Sustainable Energy, Water, and Food Systems
What can the G20 do to promote a sustainable bioeconomy and stable food systems?
The required move from a fossil fuel-based economy to a bioeconomy, characterized by a sustainable use of renewable resources, entails a number of trade-offs that need to be addressed. Policy-makers need to understand the trade-offs in order to make the right decisions. This panel discusses the important trade-off between agricultural production for food and bio fuels, and biodiversity protection. It reflects on the international externalities of national biodiversity strategies and the role of the G20.
