Towards a new language for sustainable natural resource management

EFG/UNECE conference: International cooperation on natural resources: geoscientists’ contribution to enhanced governance, policy making and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals

Rising population and increasing urbanization will have a massive global impact on the demand for energy and raw materials. Many countries will increasingly look to secure sustainable supplies of energy and minerals by proactively developing their domestic resource base where available. Countries without indigenous resources will rely on the international markets for uninterrupted supplies. Significant investments in the development of local as well as overseas energy and minerals projects are therefore foreseen in the future. The UNECE and the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) have partnered on the organization of a conference on “International cooperation on natural resources: geoscientists’ contribution to enhanced governance, policy making and attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals”, in Brussels, 9-10 February.
