A framework for grouping circular cities

Building on the development of a harmonised Circular Jobs Methodology, Circle Economy and UNEP have embarked on the development of a City Typology framework that aims to bring a huge diversity of cities together into a more manageable and generalised set of types to support the transition to a circular economy. 

 

The framework consists of four broad city types that are constructed from three variables, which influence the circular economy considerations of a city. The framework will continue to be developed to form practical pathways towards a more circular economy for each of the city types.

PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS

“Ends” Framework
‘Ends’ frameworks help us envision the dot on the horizon and ensure the end goal we are working towards takes key concepts that we care about into account.
“Means” Framework
‘Means’ frameworks provide us with the tools to translate visions into concrete realities. Where ‘ends’ frameworks put a dot on the horizon, ‘means’ frameworks pave the way.
