Re-thinking Progress: The Circular Economy (2011)

Video shown during network day AgriProFocus Zambia - November 2016.

There's a world of opportunity to re-think and re-design the way we make stuff.

'Re-Thinking Progress' explores how through a change in perspective we can re-design the way our economy works - designing products that can be 'made to be made again' and powering the system with renewable energy. It questions whether with creativity and innovation we can build a restorative economy.

Organisations with a special interest in this topic, or with particular experiences they like to share, please share these on this online platform. AgriProFocus included circular economy oriented agribusiness among the key themes of our new strategic plan, so we are interested to link up with you.


Cabinet GLOBAL NOVAT The circular economy is an economic concept that falls within the framework of sustainable development and which is inspired in particular by the notions of green economy, economics of use or economics of functionality, Economy of performance and industrial ecology (which wants the waste of an industry to be recycled in raw material of another industry or the same one). Such an economy operates in a loop, thus dispensing with the notion of waste. Its objective is to produce goods and services while greatly limiting consumption and waste of raw materials, and non-renewable energy sources.

Yes, today it becomes an imperative to review our way of conceiving progress ie development based on the continued use of our. Renewable and non-renewable natural resources. It is no secret today that the developing countries and in particular my country Benin only opts for single-use products / equipment (eg plastic bags and many others). These products / equipment constitute waste which damages our health by incentives, contribute to the drastic decline in the yields of the various speculations (which should not be the case in circular economy). They can be retransformed and reused which is not the case. However, renewable and non-renewable natural resources are gradually being depleted. Developing countries must opt ​​for the circular economy for sustainable progress.

Cabinet GLOBAL NOVAT L'économie circulaire est un concept économique qui s'inscrit dans le cadre du développement durable et qui s'inspire notamment des notions d'économie verte, d’économie de l'usage ou de l'économie de la fonctionnalité, de l'économie de la performance et de l'écologie industrielle (laquelle veut que le déchet d'une industrie soit recyclé en matière première d'une autre industrie ou de la même). Une telle économie fonctionne en boucle, se passant ainsi de la notion de déchet. Son objectif est de produire des biens et services tout en limitant fortement la consommation et le gaspillage des matières premières, et des sources d'énergies non renouvelables.

Oui, ajourd'hui cela devient un impératif de revoir notre façon de concevoir le progrès c'est à dire le développement qu'on se base sur l'utilisation continue de nos . ressources naturelles renouvelables et non renouvelables. Il n'est un secret pour personne aujourd'hui que les pays en voie de développement et en particulier mon pays le Bénin n'opte que pour des produits/équipements à usage unique (Ex: les sachets plastiques et bien d'autres). Ces produits/équipements, constituent des déchets qui en dommage notre santé par des incénérations, contribuent à la baisse drastique des rendements des différents spéculations ( ce qui ne devrait pas être le cas en économie circulaire). Ils peuvent être retransformer et réutiliser ce qui n'est pas  le cas. Or les ressources naturelles renouvelables et non renouvelables sont progressivement en épuisement. Les Pays en voie de Développement doivent impérativement optés pour l'économie circulaire pour un progrès durable.
