Global Policy Initiatives for the Circular Economy and their Impact on Developing and Emerging Countries

Project
Duration
-

Many strong economies have developed strategies to foster the circular economy. But what do we know about how these plans impact developing and emerging countries? Do the strategies itself take the effects on developing and emerging countries into account? Which risks and opportunities arise from a shift to a circular economy in industrialised countries to developing and emerging countries? This project analysed some of these effects. The project's key recommendations and highlights are published in the project report.

Developing and emerging countries will be affected by the shift to a circular economy in industrialised countries. Opportunities arise from better repair options and cushioned resource prices, trade-offs may come from an increased demand for biomass.
