The international crisis related to COVID-19 has heavily impacted bioenergy in the short term through a double shock of price and demand, with the sector requiring attention to avoid lasting damage.

The crisis has also brought to light the need for strong economic recovery programmes across many sectors, and several countries are considering the opportunity to build back better, including sustainable development and environmental considerations as an integral part of recovery packages.

The twenty Biofuture Platform Member Countries share a vision for a low carbon sustainable bioeconomy, and at this time they recognise the urgent need to support the sector in the short term, but also to embed the low carbon bioeconomy in broad economic recovery programs for long-term growth and success. As a way to facilitate consideration of policies and programs, they have put forward five non-binding core Biofuture Principles for post-COVID bioeconomy recovery and acceleration. The October 15 webinar will go through the five Principles and look at current and possible applications at the national level.
