Seminar: international impact of the Dutch circular economy
On 16 May, PBL organises a seminar about the international impact of the Dutch circular economy transition. What is the role of international trade in this transition? And how can the Netherlands ensure that its circular transition has positive effects on low- and middle-income countries?
The Circular Economy Progress Report 2022 provides an update of the progress and transition towards a circular economy. It builds on the conclusions published by PBL in January 2021 in the Integral Circular Economy Report (ICER 2021). This progress report looks more closely at the possible role of the circular economy in tackling the various challenges within the human environment.
PBL provides research for Convention on Biological Diversity
The 15th UN Biodiversity Conference (CBD COP15) will be held in the second half of 2022, calling for halting biodiversity loss and restoring nature, and to agree on a global policy framework that stimulates urgent and transformative action on biodiversity by governments and society towards 2030. Negotiations resumed in person in March 2022 in Geneva. PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency contributes with knowledge and insights, for example, in scenarios on achieving biodiversity goals.
The Climate and Energy Outlook (Klimaat- en Energieverkenning), as stipulated in the Dutch Climate Act, provides insight into the development of greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands, up to and including 2030.
