OECD Roundtable on the Circular Economy in Cities and Regions

Updated on 24.01.2023

The OECD Programme on the Circular Economy in Cities and Regions supports cities and regions in their transition towards a circular economy. It does so through multi-level dialogues to identify challenges and opportunities, peer-to-peer learning, and key indicators for decision making and evaluation of strategies. This roundtable brought together key circular economy stakeholders from cities, regions, national governments, business, academia and international organisations to share knowledge, experiences and best practices.

Relevance for Circular Systemic Solutions

The first part of this webinar presented and discussed the OECD’s report "The Circular Economy in Ireland", which analyses the state of play and challenges of the circular transition in Ireland and provides recommendations for circular economy policy across different levels of government.

The second part of the webinar was dedicated to measuring circular economy progress in cities and regions. Several case studies were presented to explain how the OECD Scoreboard on the Governance of the Circular Economy in Cities and Regions has been used to help cities self-assess the existing enabling conditions for a circular economy, to identify challenges, and to set priorities towards a more effective, efficient and just circular economy transition.

The last part of the webinar focused on city-to-city learning by showcasing the experience of the cities of Tallinn (Estonia), Brussels Capital Region (Belgium) and Valladolid (Spain) in their path towards a circular economy.

The second part of the webinar, on the application of the OECD Scoreboard, may be of particular interest when it comes to governance aspects and the development of Circular Systemic Solutions. The OECD Scoreboard is a self-assessment tool based on the 12 key governance dimensions to enable a circular economy system.
