    • Society & Culture

Latin America is in many ways a rich region with abundant natural resources, human capital, and bio-economy assets. However, the economies within it are predominantly linear and highly extractive - depleting and degrading the environment. In this episode, Laura Franco Henao and Michael Oliveira discuss how can the circular economy provide an alternative pathway that is regenerative by design and creates value that is inclusive and distributed. In this session, we ask those questions to people working in the region and highlight the significant roles of innovation, policy and finance.
