The Roadmap for Transitioning to a Circular Economy in the Municipality of Belen consists of two sections, the first covers a context analysis that includes a review of the legal framework related to the circular economy, a mapping of initiatives and actors related to circular economy initiatives, socioeconomic and environmental data, as well as the identification of key elements of the territory.

The second section presents the roadmap, which is based on a self-diagnosis of circularity and has as its structure the vision, mission, objectives and general goals, as well as the expected results.

In addition, an identification and prioritization of opportunities is made, and potential barriers, policy options to overcome barriers and strategic actions to implement the roadmap are addressed.
