Unlocking Circular Economy Finance in Latin America and the Caribbean: The Catalyst for a Positive Change


The study was commissioned by UNEP, UNEP FI, and GO4SDGS, in close cooperation with the IDB and IDB Invest and with co-funding from Germany (The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection BMUV) and the European Commission. Research and technical review have been carried out by Instituto Escolhas and Exchange 4 Change Brasil. An interest group was formed to actively provide critical feedback on the report, concurrently helping set the foundations for the circular economy stakeholder network in Latin America and the Caribbean. Dialogues with key stakeholders also raised awareness and enriched the findings and recommendations.
