This study aims to develop a scenario for Cimahi, a city in Indonesia to take a major step forward to a circular economy(CE) and become the first Indonesian circular city (CC). The project will focus on the city’s waste system and identify aspects that can act as drivers to transition away from the current linear economy model. It incorporates tangible and practical collaborative measures to aid the move toward a circular city status. The scenarios will help urbans and city planners to navigate the uncertainty of the future in the short and long term in managing the city waste system. Each scenario describes the situation and potential impacts that will have on Cimahi’s waste systems and informs about the opportunities, risks to anticipate the possible implications on urban problems due to city waste. This will target waste trading and recycling operations and promote the improvement of relevant institutions for waste trading and more participatory activities among stakeholders. The main breakthrough will be to identify the waste sector areas that provide a significant and tangible contribution to the practical implementation of a circular city. The results will make a scientific contribution to the circular economy discussion at the city level in terms of its implementation in a developing country. The scenarios themselves will enable Cimahi to identify and scale up its formulation of projects and their adoption at various levels in the waste sector. The findings will aim to establish a plan for Cimahi as an important pilot project as the first Indonesian circular city signalling a repurposed waste chain as the focal issue.
