“El papel de la Economía Circular en la lucha contra el cambio climático”

The year 2021 is a pivotal milestone for the international environmental and climate agendas. At COP 26 in Glasgow, Scotland, one of the central discussions was about the necessity to seek new ways to respond to the challenges of the post-COVID-19 economic recovery, which must be guided by values of the future, in view of dealing with the climate crisis. In this scenario, the circular economy proves to be a fundamental alternative for sustainable economic development internationally, but especially in the Latin American region, which is rich in natural resources. 

This paper summarizes the main points of the discussions held under the project "The Role of Circular Economy in the Fight against Climate Change", of the Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI), in collaboration with the Regional Program on Energy Security and Climate Change in Latin America (EKLA) of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS). It presents the main reflections of specialists on the possibilities and perspectives of new circular models for the Latin American region.
