Topic 2: Measuring/monitoring the circular transition

Shifting from waste management approaches to circular economy strategies means revising how progresses are monitored. However, there is no simple and convenient way to monitor circularity and its impacts at local and regional level. The multi-dimensional aspect of circular economy and the diversity of objectives behind circular economy strategies make it necessary to identify new sets of targets and indicators. This session will highlight two examples of approaches aiming to go beyond weight-based indicators, and better reflecting the environmental impact of local circular economy strategies.
