A delegation led by Anthony Nyon, Director of Climate Change and Green Growth, African Development Bank attends the 2023 World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF2023) in Helsinki, Finland.
WCEF2023 is the seventh annual forum co-organized by Nordic Innovation and Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra with international partners such as the African Development Bank. The forum brings together business leaders, policy makers and experts from around the world to present the best circular economy solutions. WCEF explores how society and business can seize new opportunities to accelerate the global transition to a circular economy in order to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. WCEF is the world’s best known neutral global circular economy event and platform for the global circular movement.
A strong involvement of the African Development Bank is planned for WCEF2023 to build on and build on last year’s WCEF results and demonstrate the circular economy ambitions in Africa. This included speaker roles at the plenary session and side events, as well as hosting an African delegation of six participants from ACEA member countries and African organizations. I will attend and speak at the event with the mission team.
