World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) 2019

Helsinki, 5 June – On 3-5 June, 2019, the third annual World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) 2019 in Helsinki, Finland, organised by the Finnish innovation fund Sitra, brought together over 2,200 of the world’s top business leaders, policymakers, researchers and innovators from more than 90 countries to work towards implementing a circular economy. This year’s forum included a dedicated session on Africa to discuss the goal of scaling up the circular economy in the continent. Almost 70 African representatives from different parts of the continent attended the forum.  The companies represented innovative and commercially viable African expertise in the circular economy. The African Development Bank’s ten-year strategy (2013-2022) aims to change African economies to inclusive green growth, and it helps several countries to develop green growth strategies that incorporate circular economy principles. It hosts a suite of tailor-made de-risking financial instruments that drive innovations on the continent including public and private circular economy projects. IDA Attendance.
