Regional Circularity and Resilience Strategy
The Regional Circularity Co-operative and resilience strategy will set a national and international benchmark and model. It will articulate the Bega Circular Valley program including the vision, projects, its pillars, pathways and project governance and financing mechanisms that will deliver the transformation of the Bega Valley economy. The Strategy will clearly link to local, State and Federal actions and targets to improve the use and value of resources and the resilience of local communities. It will include a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation program to inform continuous improvement and support uptake in other jurisdictions.
A Non distributing co-operative has been established and a legal framework with a clear strategic direction.
- Education – Global best practice in a regional context. It will lead to a broader more holistic definition and framework of a real life circular economy, achieving a national (and international) model for the future.
- Resilience – It contributes to outcomes of the Bega Valley Community Strategic Plan, Climate Resilience Strategy. It improves social resilience and diversifies the economy for Australia’s most disaster impacted local government area of 2020.
- Local economy – It contributes to outcomes of NSW Economic Vision for Regional NSW; NSW Circular Economy Policy and Far South Coast REDS.
- Waste – It contributes to outcomes of National Waste Action Plan and South East and Tablelands Regional Plan.
