Sustainably managing plastic waste is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. This challenge is exacerbated in Africa due to poor infrastructure and inadequate waste management systems. The circular economy has been tipped to play a significant role in the global shift to a more sustainable planet. Its key principles; reuse, recycle, redesign, remanufacture, reduce and recover, will make a significant impact in managing the high volumes of waste in the ecosystem.
This webinar will highlight the state of Circular Plastic Economy in Africa, identifying opportunities and challenges. Particular emphasis will be on opportunities for digital tools/innovations to manage and accelerate the transition to a circular plastic economy (CPE) in Africa.
