The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance project:
Deadline: 12 August 2022
The UNFCCC has identified the Circular Economy as ‘crucial for the Paris Climate Goals’. On the premise that there is a strong link between climate change and materiality, the Global Circularity Gap Report (2012) argues that additional contributions to NDCs can be made by implementing dematerializing and decoupling Circular Economy strategies globally. While South Africa has identified the important role of the Circular Economy in combating climate change, a clear narrative and strategy to drive the shift to a green economy and economic growth is still missing. An overarching national circular economy policy strategy is needed to encourage coordination and collaborations amongst the government departments and its major stakeholders, including the private sector. The development of a Science, Technology and Innovation-led strategy in the form of a Roadmap for Circular Economy can present a strong policy coordination and planning tool for national departments to clarify their contributions and responsibilities.
The CTCN is supporting the Department of Science and Innovation to establish the appropriate cooperative process to develop a Circular Economy Roadmap for South Africa based on evidence-led and knowledge-based policy making to drive the transition to a circular economy from a systems perspective and taking into account the results of Material Flow Analysis.
