United States to become next chair of the Biofuture Platform

The United States has been announced as the next chair of the Biofuture Platform, a government-led, multi-stakeholder initiative designed to take action on climate change and support the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting international coordination on the sustainable low-carbon bioeconomy. The US will take over from incumbent chair, Brazil, in June 2021. 

The Biofuture Platform was launched in November 2016 at the COP22 climate talks in Marrakesh, and the IEA has been the Facilitator of the Biofuture Platform since February 2019.
