WRF-IRP Webinar – 23 June 2022 – Close the gap while closing the loop? Global North-South relations for a fair circular economy transition

Start time June 23, 2022 14:00
Finished Time March 20, 2025 16:30

With the global shift to a circular economy, new material and financial flows will progressively disrupt international economic relations and trade patterns consolidated in decades of a globalized linear economic system.

How can countries effectively manage such large-scale transformations while improving the distribution of opportunities for circular economic value creation around the globe? What is required to build mutual trust and credibility as the basis for cooperation among high-income and low-income countries? Is the approach currently driving climate negotiations helpful towards this aim?

Are you interested to explore how we can manage a global just transition to the circular economy?
