Towards a Latin America & Caribbean Knowledge Based Bio-Economy (KBBE) in partnership with Europe

Objective

The project objective is to establish a LAC-UE platform bringing together regional and continental organizations involved in research funding and implementation, as well as other relevant stakeholders from the public and private sector and the civil society, in an effort to generate relevant information for the design and implementation of specific plans and projects, included the needed R&D and set the basis for the establishments of an enabling policy and institutional environment, as well as, for the development and consolidation of the KBBE in both the regions. To achieve this aim the project activities are oriented to generate information relevant to KBBE related issues in LAC, to help establish a strategic reflection and analysis on KBBE opportunities and limitations in the region, to stimulate KBBE related research and development ALC-UE cooperation, and to insert the KBBE theme in ALC policy agendas.

The proposed structure to implement these activities include (i) a partner consortium of ALC and EU organizations directly involved in different aspects of R&D and implementation of KBBE concepts in both regions, which will assume the project’s operational responsibilities, with the French CIRAD as consortium coordinator, and (ii) a broader array of stakeholders (institutions –public and private – playing key roles in different aspects of the KBBE: R&D, policy advice, advocacy, key sectors representation, etc.) which will participate as platform members in accordance to their interests and areas of expertise. This platform will constitute the cornerstone of the project and will be convened regularly during the project to analyze information and options, identify possible scenarios and R&D and policy agendas, and institutional and other issues that could emerge as the discussion evolves. (iii) strategic and macro guidance of the project will be the responsibility of a Steering Committee integrated by people from ALC and UE with recognized experience and expe
