Pour que la recherche ait un impact, la science a besoin de canaux de communication clairs pour aller droit au but. Le CIFOR-ICRAF est aussi passionné par le partage de ses connaissances que par leur production.
Para que la investigación pueda generar algún impacto, los conocimientos científicos requieren de canales de comunicación claros. En CIFOR-ICRAF, compartir nuestros conocimientos nos apasiona tanto como generarlos.
Ilmu pengetahuan membutuhkan saluran komunikasi yang jelas untuk mencapai tujuan, jika ingin dampaknya terlihat. CIFOR-ICRAF sangat bersemangat untuk berbagi pengetahuan sembari menghasilkan pengetahuan itu sendiri.
CIFOR–ICRAF achieves science-driven impact. We conduct innovative research, strengthen
partners’ capacity and actively engage in dialogue with all stakeholders, bringing the latest insights on
forests, trees, landscapes and people to global decision making.
CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests,
landscapes, people and the planet.
We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and
restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short,
improving people’s lives.
The contribution of a forest-based circular bioeconomy to sustainable development
To meet the sustainable development goals, we need to transition to a circular bioeconomy that is based on sustainably-sourced renewable bioresources . As our most important piece of biological infrastructure, forests are the main source of renewable biomaterials and bioenergies, and are central to realising the new and necessary paradigm of a circular bioeconomy. Rapid advances in science and technology offer potential for new sustainable business opportunities in a wide range of sectors, including construction, chemicals, transport, textiles, energy, and plastics. Public and private investments, and a mobilized financial system, will be required in order to accelerate and scale up these innovations into market solutions. An enabling regulatory framework, and a sustainable marketplace that generates long-term value through the balanced integration of natural, social and financial capital, will also be critical.
This special session will showcase the key contributions that the forest sector provides to the sustainable circular bioeconomy, and identify options for upscaling actions to ensure an effective transition.
