For local areas or territories, the development of the circular economy is less of an environmental challenge than an economic imperative and, more generally, a matter of resilience. This is particularly true in the case of the Paris Region (known as Île-de-France), a world-class metropolis which imports almost all its resources. Thus, the Paris Region’s regional waste prevention and management plan commits the region to creating the dynamics of a circular economy in order to limit the consumption and wastage of resources.
