Roadmap - Towards the Circular Economy in Montenegro

Roadmap CE in Montenegro

The Roadmap - Towards the Circular Economy in Montenegro aims to steer the transition to a circular economy in Montenegro. It is based on systemic thinking and outlines the main drivers, horizontal and priority areas, opportunities for circular transformation and recommendations for the way forward.

The strategy identifies five focus areas (food and forest systems, the built environment, tourism and manufacturing) that are highly interconnected and, through the principles of industrial symbiosis and synergies, can result in systemic change.

The roadmap is an outcome of collaboration between the Montenegrin Chamber of the Economy, UNDP, Circular Change and Deloitte BiH.

Recis

The Circular Economy Network in Islands (RECIS) is a non-profit association based on the island of Gran Canaria.

It studies and disseminates circular economy solutions to resource scarcity and environmental fragility, which hinder the development of island territories. It also promotes the circular economy in islands and nurtures good practices and sustainability. The network takes a broad approach, since many of the problems facing islands require multidisciplinary solutions.

  • circular solutions with companies or institutions managing these resources
  • experts providing opinions and solutions
  • public administrations
  • researchers who will be able to develop new methodologies
