GACERE High-Level Meeting


The first High-Level Meeting of the Global Alliance on Circular Economy and Resource Efficiency (GACERE) will take place on the sidelines of the upcoming World Circular Economy Forum and provide the opportunity to the membership of GACERE to convene and take stock of progress in the Alliance’s work since its launch in February 2021 and agree on future priorities. More specifically, the high-level meeting will provide an opportunity for GACERE members to discuss progress in the development of knowledge products highlighting the interlinkages between circular economy and climate change, green recovery and possibly biodiversity.

The high-level meeting will also facilitate the discussion of current experiences in promoting a just transition to a resource efficient and circular economy in GACERE member countries and of existing gaps and barriers for which the Alliance's support would be instrumental. Register here.

Background: Bringing together governments and relevant networks and organizations, the Alliance provides the global impetus for initiatives related to the circular economy transition, resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production, building on efforts being deployed internationally, including by the G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency and the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue.

Event organizers: UNIDO and the United Nations Environment Programme in  collaboration with the European Union (European Commission – Directorate General for the Environment)

When: 14 September 2021 at 6:00 to 8:00 EDT (UTC-4) / 12:00 to 14:00 CEST (UTC+2) 

Where: Online via Zoom

Who: GACERE members. Additional governments, international organizations and strategic partners may also join the session as observers.
