The circular economy has tremendous potential to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation, as well as halting biodiversity loss through reducing material consumption, regenerative agriculture and nature-based solutions. This session discusses the takeaways of the COP27 and presents the circular economy as a pathway to reach climate and biodiversity targets on the African continent. It describes how a just transition to circularity is crucial in achieving the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs).
The programme details and speakers for this session will be updated soon.
