Circular360 was launched at the COP26 UN Climate Change Conference on 4 November 2021, building upon South Australia’s international reputation and leadership in the circular economy.
South Australia is a role model that demonstrates how active collaboration between the government, industry, community, research and education sector can transform a region.
In 2016, Adelaide, capital of South Australia, was host to forty-one countries who participated in The 7th Regional 3R Forum in Asia and the Pacific organised by the United Nations Center for Regional Development (UNCRD), Government of Australia, Government of Japan, and the Government of South Australia.
A key outcome of the forum was the ‘Adelaide Declaration on Circular Economy’ that called upon multilateral development banks, donors, development agencies, United Nations organizations to provide necessary capacity-building and support (financing, human resources, knowledge and technical know-how) for accelerating the circular economy in the Asia Pacific Region.
Circular360 aims to fulfill the ‘Adelaide Declaration on Circular Economy’.
