FERRARA, 13 December 2019 – The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has introduced policymakers from Tunisia, Egypt and Morocco to the different phases of the circular economy from engineering, economics and law perspectives. The training programme on circular economy policies for representatives of Ministries of Industry, Economy, Commerce, Finance and Environment was provided by UNIDO in collaboration with the University of Ferrara, the Centre for Research on Circular economy, Innovation and SMEs (CERCIS) and the SEEDS interuniversity research centre.
