Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: circular economy could be summarized in these three words. The elimination of waste and the consistent use of sustainable resources boosts efficiency and promotes remanufacturing, while reuse reduces pressure on primary resources. Such an approach is beneficial for human beings and the Earth, and is in line with the objectives set by the international community through the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With this round table, TWAS would like to spark a debate on how developing countries could engage in a higher-value circular economy.
