On the 26th of October 2022, Sustainable Inclusive Business(SIB-K), a knowledge center under the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), partnered with TheRockGroup (TRG) and the European Union to co-host the 7th Annual Circular Economy Conference in Nairobi.
The conference, which took place ahead of COP27, brought together governments, private sector players, bilateral partners, civil societies,
academia, and individuals from across Africa and internationally, to provide an understanding of key ingredients in a successful roadmap to a circular economy. It highlighted the challenges, trends, and opportunities in Southern and East Africa in creating a new circular system.
With an audience of over 500 participants, the hybrid conference was financially supported by the European Union (EU) in Kenya and the
International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) through its BIODEV2030 project.
