Policy brief

Council for Scientific and Industrial Research

South Africa

With its multi-sectoral expertise, the CSIR is well positioned to explore the opportunities a circular economy provides South Africa, through the lens of science, technology and innovation. To this end, the CSIR has released eight short think-pieces in the form of a book and individual briefing notes which suggest that transitioning to a more circular economy has the potential to create value across all sectors of the South African economy.
