The basic aim of the chapter is to understand the concept of a “Circular
Economy” from the context of developing economies in Asia. It explores the
dimensions of a circular economy as the nexus of four key issues – Food, Energy,
Water and Waste - the “FEWW Nexus”. It takes the perspectives of national and local
governments to outline strategies that can be used for developing circular economy
policies and action. The chapter presents the “GET Matrix” as a concrete multistakeholder
policy tool, bringing together three policy patterns, the Global-Nationa-
-Local pattern; the Governments-Business-Civil Society pattern; and the Governance-
Education and Technology pattern.

Keywords: Circular economy, Energy, Food, Waste, Water.
