Mapping the Circular Economy Across Africa

In progress

Africa is one of the most “ready-for-circularity” continents. This is reflected in the proliferation of CE initiatives and successful examples of CE applications across the continent as well as the great interest in learning from the successes. The diversity of examples underlines the fact that CE is intuitive to Africans and consistent with African cultures as well as environmental and livelihood objectives.

In collaboration with Footprints Africa and the African Circular Economy Network (ACEN), GRID-Arendal have been mapping these examples from across the continent. The developed, ever-growing database and interactive map of existing initiatives are used in workshops and skills-building programs for emerging circular economy practitioners across Africa.
