Ecological Economics, 2018, vol. 149, issue C, 120-128

Abstract: Bioeconomy as a political-economic concept proposes the replacement of fossil resources by bio-based resources in order to address climate change mitigation and counteract resource depletion. The aim of this paper is to figure out how competitiveness across primary sectors, i.e. sector A, bio-based agriculture, forestry and fishing, and sector B, non-bio-based mining and quarrying, is distributed across geographical regions and how it changes over time.
