This panel will debate strategies for promoting the densification and improvement of value chains related to products and services of the bioeconomy in the Amazon.
This panel highlights the paradox between the Amazon’s extraordinary biodiversity and its distance from the scientific,
technological, and market frontier of the contemporary bioeconomy. It discusses the current socioeconomic structures available in the region, as well as challenges and pathways for a transition to a socially-fair and sustainable bioeconomy.
