Global Platform: ICLEI Circulars

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability has launched ICLEI Circulars, a global platform, which works across regions to facilitate the circular economy transition at the local level.

“Through regional hubs, ICLEI Circulars will work with communities around the world to find the best circular solutions to address pressing local challenges and offer sector-specific guidance for cities to begin working with circular development solutions where their need is greatest,” ICLEI – a global network of more than 2,500 local and regional governments – gave account. The platform’s flagship publication, City Practitioners Handbook: Circular Food Systems, offers practical tools and learnings from 50 local and regional governments on circular food systems and was developed with contributions from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, the United Nations Environment Programme, Circle Economy, The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, Metabolic and RUAF.
