As the global demand for food, raw materials and energy grows, a UN food security expert is calling for a new economic and industrial model.

He calls it bioeconomy, a model which relies on the sustainable use and exploitation of naturally occurring renewable resources like plants, trees and marine products.

The Global Forum for Food and Agriculture is currently being hosted at Berlin's annual "International Green Week" which is taking place this week.

Speaking to Murielle Sarr, Vladimir Rakhmanin of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) says managing land and soils with a bioeconomic approach will be crucial to addressing the food security challenge.
