Advancing the circular economy in Asia


While the circular economy is gaining momentum in the agenda for growth in the developed world, it is also starting to make its way into developing countries in Asia. Building up on local culture and traditions that value principles of recycle and reuse, developing innovative solutions and adapting to local specificities, the circular economy unfolds at a different pace yet with proven benefits.

The 2016 issue of the SWITCH-Asia Magazine focuses on the circular economy, with an overview of its status in Europe and Asia and a number of case studies of concrete application in developing countries.
