Fostering inclusivity with circularity in Africa’s post COVID-19 recovery

Wednesday 30 September 2020 at 12:00-13:15 (UTC+3)

Lead organiser: African Circular Economy Alliance

Economic diversification is a key climate adaptation strategy that helps increase the resilience of livelihoods and income security for a fair and inclusive transition to climate change-resilient development. This session will cover how a circular economy – by its core principle of decoupling economic growth from resource consumption – has the potential to be a catalyst for low-emission and climate friendly development in Africa.
