UNEP International Resource Panel

Planet RE:think was produced in cooperation with UNEP. The International Resource Panel was established in 2007 to provide independent, coherent and scientific assessment on the sustainable use of natural resources and the environmental impacts of resource use over the full life cycle.

By providing up-to-date information and best science available, the International Resource Panel contributes to a better understanding of how to decouple human development and economic growth from environmental degradation. The information contained in the International Resource Panel’s reports is intended to be policy relevant and support policy framing, policy and programme planning and enable evaluation and monitoring of policy effectiveness.
