ICLEI Circulars

Circular Development is one of ICLEI´s five strategic pathways towards sustainable urban development. Through the Circular Development pathway, local and regional governments decouple urban and economic development from resource consumption, encourage equitable access to resources and create closed-loop urban and peri-urban systems. They support new local economies that are productive and not extractive, where resources are exchanged and not wasted.

ICLEI Circulars gathers the latest knowledge on circular economy interventions at local and regional government levels around the world, provides materials for awareness raising and global advocacy, offers implementation support on circular development actions and policies and facilitates peer-to-peer exchange.
