Short description:

Consistent policy framework & long term vision
A positive investment climate is crucial for further developments and growth of the sector. This implies long term perspectives and a consistent policy framework. Uncertainties and stop & go policies are detrimental to investments. This does not mean that nothing can be changed. Policy needs to be consistent, but also dynamic to be effective (e.g. in case of price fluctuations). It is very important to have a long term policy vision.
The timeframe for a vision can be 20 years and more (e.g. 2050); a policy framework needs to be clear for the next 10 to 20 years, as this is also the timeframe for investments. Biomass and developments in the biobased economy link to different policy fields (agriculture, forestry, environment, climate, energy, trade, economy …). It is important that there is consistency between these policy fields
