About the OECD Roundtable on the Circular Economy in Cities and Regions

Cities use almost two-thirds of global energy and produce up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions and 50% of global waste. The circular economy provides a policy response to cope with these challenges and is a driver for economic growth, jobs and environmental quality.

Yet, there has been little policy research and attention on cities and regions within the circular economy discourse, as compared to national governments. Why? And what is the potential of cities and regions to help make the transition from a linear to a circular economy happen? 

Background

The OECD Programme on the Circular Economy in Cities and Regions supports cities and regions in their transition towards a circular economy through multi-level dialogues to identify challenges and opportunities; peer-to-peer learning and key indicators for decision making and evaluation of the circular economy strategies.

The Roundtable will bring together key circular economy stakeholders from cities, regions, national government, business, academia and international organisations to share knowledge, experiences and best practices.
