BioMonitor Policy Brief #5, July 2021 – based on a paper by Kardung and Drabik.
Abstract: Measuring the progress of the circular bioeconomy requires quantifying a range of indicators that determine its development. This broad palette of indicators makes it harder for policymakers to consider all of them in their decisions. We devised a theoretical framework that accommodates any number of well-defined quantitative indicators to make it easier for decision-makers to see the overall development of the circular bioeconomy. We found that the circular bioeconomies of ten EU countries generally progressed over the period of 2006–2016, but not all indicators exhibited this general development.
