Namibia ranks second on bioeconomy strategy

The co-chair of the International Advisory Council on Bioeconomy, Julius Ecuru, has congratulated Namibia on its push to establish a bioeconomy strategy.

“Namibia will become the second country in Africa, joining South Africa, to have a national and dedicated bioeconomy strategy,” he says.

The bioeconomy strategy launch took place at a Windhoek hotel on Thursday.

National Commission on Research, Science and Technology chairperson Jacob Nyambe at the event said the bioeconomy strategy for 2024 to 2029 highlights a vision where economic growth is not at odds with environmental sustainability.

He said the launch marks a milestone in ongoing efforts to harness the power of biodiversity.

“The bioeconomy strategy represents a bold vision,” Nyambe said.

He said Namibia has “immense” bioeconomy potential.
