Policy Area (PA) ‘Bioeconomy’ aims at reinforcing sustainability of agriculture, forestry and fisheries by promoting an integrated approach.

PA Bioeconomy actions concentrate on pursuing the bioeconomy actually and practically for example by improving policy coherence and policy learning and by engaging the private sector. For example, recycling of nutrients in agriculture and finding a common approach for sustainable strategies for wood are seen as essential. In fisheries management emphasis is on improving coordination among Member States and stakeholders in the region.

The Baltic Sea Region has the potential to become one of the world's leading regions in green growth and sustainable development. Bioeconomy offers many new business and job opportunities.

PA Bioeconomy is coordinated by Finland, Lithuania (rural development), Sweden (fisheries) and Nordic Council of MInisters (bio-economy)
