ACR+ setting up new working groups on circular economy: governance, procurement and monitoring

Governance, procurement, and monitoring: these interlinked topics have been chosen for 3 ACR+ new working groups on circular economy.

They will bring together front-runners and learners to work on improving local and regional strategies on circular economy and resource efficiency.

Each of the working groups will focus on one specific topic:

  • Governance: a territorial approach of circular economy requires different types of governance, enabling the development of efficient strategies and facilitating the involvement of the various kinds of stakeholders that can contribute to the transition to circular economy.
  • Procurement: circular public procurement has the potential for stimulating the development or upscaling of more circular solutions.
  • Monitoring: circular economy indicators adapted to cities and regions are essential to monitor the effectiveness of circular economy strategies.

Three orientation papers provide more details on these topics and propose activities to be co-constructed and implemented by the end of 2020.

More information on the working groups are available here.
