How could digital technologies provide a solution to this challenge?

Pollution from industrial manufacturing and municipal solid waste can be addressed through an inclusive circular economy (CE) innovations in cities and urban areas. Through CE innovations, sustainable supply networks and provisioning systems can be created. Big data & IoT can provide accurate data about resource flows to make provisioning systems more efficient or measure environmental data to provide users with information about potential health hazards.
