Circular City Actions Framework
This publication introduces the Circular City Actions Framework, a set of five complementary strategies cities can use to start working towards a more circular system. These strategies address the different roles that local and regional governments play, from public service delivery to cooperation with local stakeholders, asset management, urban planning and regulation. They can be applied to all production, consumption and waste management processes influenced by the city or its residents. The publication gives concrete examples of the five strategies illustrated through case studies.
This publication is a product of the Circle Lab for Cities program. The program supports cities worldwide as they take the next step in their circular journey through online and offline tools that support circular development planning and implementation at the local level. Circle Lab for Cities is funded by MAVA Foundation and implemented by Circle Economy, ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, Metabolic, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
