The CSIR and OECD, in partnership with ACEN and the Government of South Africa, hosted a hybrid 2-day workshop on the 21-22 November 2022, on “Ensuring economic, social and environmental gains of a circular economy transition”. This two-day workshop explored:
- How can South Africa address the growing plastic pollution problem in a way that benefits the environment, society and the economy?
- As a developing country, what are appropriate policy instruments to unlock a more circular economy and realise the triple dividends for the economy, labour markets and the environment?
- How can trade contribute to a more resource-efficient and circular South African economy?
