Cities on the Frontline: Circular Economy. Creating Urban Resilience & Employment
Mar 11, 2021
We hear a lot about this concept of circular economy and circularity particularly with regard to advancing more sustainable cities and enhancing city resilience. What does it really take to set up a circular economy? What are the benefits that can be achieved – for the people, local economy, for the city, region and world? This fourth session of 2021 Cities on the Frontline Speaker Series, jointly organized by Resilient Cities Network and the World Bank, will focus on “Circular Economy: Creating Urban Resilience & Employment”.
In this session, the Executive Director of Quito’s Economic Promotion Agency, CONQUITO, Wilson Merino, will share about promoting a circular economy for an eco-efficient industrial estate in Quito. We will also be joined by Nuriel Pezarkar, Founder & CEO of NobleExchange Environment Solutions, who will share about circular economy and waste management in Pune.
