Progress Towards the Resource Revolution

Progress Towards the Resource Revolution

Based on the key outputs of the WRF 2017 conference and the work performed during and after the review process in 2018 we are proud to announce this book entitled ‘Progress Towards the Resource Revolution’ which presents innovations and approaches that support solutions required by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change as well as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In line with the international developments, the focus of this book is set on:

  • Policy, governance, and education for sustainable development
  • Methods, indicators, and design for resource efficiency and sufficiency
  • Water and regional aspects
  • Metals, minerals, and materials
  • Sustainable resource management with personal views and insights from the private sector

This book demonstrates numerous examples from different countries around the world of increasing resource efficiency in various areas, impact categories and value chains and provides recommendations for mitigating climate change (Paris Agreement and SDG 13), making cities more sustainable (SDG 11), improving the accessibility of clean energy (SDG 7) and industrial innovation and infrastructure (SDG 9), making consumption and production more sustainable (SDG 12), and protecting marine environment (SDG 14) and land (SDG 15) environments.
