The current state of play of circular economy policy in Africa

The adoption and implementation of policies that can accelerate the transition to a circular economy are still in their early stages in African countries but momentum is growing.

Policymakers are increasingly recognising that the circular economy can help to deliver on broader environmental, economic, and job creation objectives alongside meeting a wide range of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As a result, the integration of the circular economy into policy developments at the local, national, and intergovernmental levels is underway. Political leadership that can set a clear pathway will be crucial to accelerate the transition.
