State of Play: Circularity in the built environment

State of Play: Circularity in the built environment

Professor Usha Iyer-Raniga is part of the SBC group working on regional reports to understand the state of play of circularity in the built environment sector.

The reports have been brought together by a global report, mapping the regional reports against relevant SDGs and lifecycle considerations across the various phases of building and construction. The Sustainable Buildings and Construction Programme (SBC) has been working on drafting regional reports to understand the state of play of circularity in the built environment sector. Reports were commissioned in the various UN designated geographical regions across the world: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America and Oceania. The reports have been brought together by a global report, mapping the regional reports against relevant SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and lifecycle considerations across the various phases of building and construction. The report concludes by presenting recommendations for incorporating circular economy as policy and programmes across countries and regions, including, where applicable as part of the National Determined Contributions and National Adaptation Plans. 
A soft launch webinar was organised to present summaries of the regional reports, the global conclusions and recommendations with commentary by experts from Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean.
