RETRACE
A Systemic Approach for Regions Transitioning towards a Circular Economy

RETRACE aims at promoting systemic design as a method allowing local and regional policies move towards a circular economy when waste from one productive process becomes input in another, preventing waste being released into the environment.
RETRACE addresses the EU challenge of transitioning towards a Circular Economy following the priorities set up by the “Flagship Initiative for a Resource-efficient Europe” for a shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy to achieve sustainable growth as enshrined in Europe 2020 strategy and the EC Communication “Towards a circular economy: A zero waste programme for Europe”.

HOLISTIC DIAGNOSIS

The aim of the Holistic Diagnosis (HD) is to analyze the territorial and policy context of each partner region to identify policy gaps and bridge them through the project. The HD has been divided in three steps:

Step 1. Holistic analysis of territories (see picture below);
Step 2. Analysis of current policies;
Step 3. Analysis of economic and industrial sectors.
