Making Natural Resource Governance Fit for the 21st Century

Making Natural Resource Governance Fit for the 21st Century

There is a growing awareness that we must manage our natural resources better. Supplies of (critical) materials are not evenly distributed. Mining of primary materials and recycling of secondary materials face ever increasing economic, environmental, and social challenges. Policymakers have now realized that inadequate global management of materials has adverse impacts on security of supply, technological innovation, livelihoods, and quality of life of people worldwide.This leaves us with the question: How can we make resource governance fit for the 21st Century?

The following report will present a summary of the main WRF 2019 highlights, including the challenges and opportunities debated during plenary sessions, as well as the exciting initiatives and solutions presented throughout the conference.
