UNECE’s Regional Conference on Circular Economy will take place on 26 June 2024, at the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Conference is held under the auspices of UNECE’s regional knowledge-sharing network Circular STEP.  

The Conference will focus on four aspects of the circular economy transition:

  • Reversing course: Innovation-enhancing public procurement for the Circularity Transition
  • Implementing UNECE PPPs for the SDG's Guidelines to promote the Circular Economy 
  • Advancing Circular Economy in Agri-Food Value Chains 
  • Improving Traceability and Transparency along International Value Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector for the Circular Economy 

The Regional Conference is held jointly by two UNECE committees on the occasion of their annual sessions: the Committee on Innovation, Competitiveness and Public-Private Partnerships (CICPPP, 24-26 June 2024) and the Steering Committee on Trade Capacity and Standards (SCTCS, 26-28 June 2024).
