International Centres of Excellence on Sustainable Resource Management (ICE-SRM) are a collaborative network of organisations focused on supporting sustainable management of the resources needed for development in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Climate Agreement. The Centres are conceived to provide – in full compliance with the adopted UNECE standards and guidelines – policy support, technical advice and consultation, education, training, dissemination, and other critical activities for stakeholders involved in sustainable development of national resource endowments.


Each Centre will promote within its activity footprint the global deployment of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) and the United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS) to describe the resources needed for attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and support their management.
