Regional Alliances

Subtitle

The transition to a global circular economy must be driven by regional players defining local priorities and developing concrete circular measures depending on regional characteristics.

The consequences of the linear economic system affect the entire planet, but each region is impacted in different ways: while some countries have to deal with plastic pollution on their beaches, other regions are concerned about their food industry or struggle to cope with imported e-waste.

 

That is why the transition to a global circular economy must be driven by regional players defining local priorities and developing concrete circular measures depending on regional characteristics. ;

 

To support the creation of networks of local partners, PACE has worked with partners to establish regional alliances on two continents: the African Circular Economy Alliance, co-founded by Rwanda, Nigeria and South Africa, and the Latin-American & Caribbean Circular Economy Coalition. Within the framework of these alliances, we work with key players in these regions to identify local solutions, share best practices and facilitate partnerships between regional governments, businesses and civil society organizations.
