By drawing inspiration from how natural ecosystems functions, a circular economy makes it possible to:
- create positive value loops with each use or reuse of the material or product before its final destruction,
- avoid depletion of natural resources by creating innovative products, services and models.
In the Pacific, circular economy projects are being developed. In agriculture, substitutes for imported animal-feed products are being found through local production of insects for poultry farmers, as part of the PROTEGE project.
