This session discusses the role that governance and policies play in the transition towards a circular economy, both globally and nationally. It also shares best practices and the lessons learned from creating circular economy road maps around the world. How can we achieve a broad and common understanding of the need for a circular economy and remove any obstacles to its implementation? What role do circular economy road maps and strategies play in this? How can we facilitate the implementation of circular economy road maps by engaging different stakeholders, including business? Is there a need for broader co-operation between forerunner countries?
