Localizing biodiversity protection through the circular economy
28 February 2022
Addressing the twin crisis of climate change and unprecedented biodiversity loss necessitates shifting from unsustainable patterns of consumption and production to a circular economic model that minimizes new production and resource extraction, avoids pollution and prioritizes regenerative resources. Local and regional governments play a key role in this process through their various functions from public service delivery, asset management, urban planning and regulation to cooperation with local stakeholders.
