Dutch circular economy strategies on low and middle-income countries

Potential effects of Dutch circular economy strategies on low- and middle-income countries: the case of electrical and electronic equipment.
'The Netherlands has the ambition to achieve a fully circular economy by 2050. In this report, we analyse what such a transition could mean for low- and middle-income countries that are connected to the Netherlands through international value chains, focusing on transboundary trade in discarded electrical and electronic equipment. We identify conditions for positive impact and discuss opportunities, risks and dilemmas. This study is part of a broader project that analyses transboundary effects of the circular economy transition in the Netherlands.'
(While oriented to the Dutch situation, there is some relevance to Australian practises) >
