It examines key aspects of bioeconomy development and governance in Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay, combining approaches from agricultural economics and political sciences to deliver evidence-based policy recommendations to foster sustainable and equitable bio-based transformations. The project is composed of two research groups led by the Center for Development Research (ZEF) at the University of Bonn and by the University of Münster and counts with the support of local scientific partners in the three focal countries.
