The African Development Bank and its partners will host a webinar on the transition to a circular economy as part of  Africa’s post COVID-19 recovery on 30 September 2020 at 9 am (GMT).

The session is part of the two-day virtual WCEFonline event (from the 29th to 30 September) of the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF). It will highlight circular economy opportunities to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient development model that bolsters jobs for youth, green innovations and sustainable development in Africa.

The African Development Bank recognizes the strategic role that the circular economy can play in promoting inclusive green growth, in line with its Ten-Year Strategy and the High Five priority objectives.

Through knowledge-sharing and public-private partnerships, the Bank is establishing the Africa Circular Economy Facility (ACEF), a multi-donor trust fund to support the adoption and diffusion of circular practices in Regional Member Countries.

Led by the Finnish Innovation Fund, Sitra, Finland has joined forces with Canada and the Netherlands to host three high-level events over the next year to address the role of circularity in promoting economic development and advancing the fight against climate change and resource depletion.
