IGA and UNECE Webinar

Driving Sustainable Development: United Nations Framework Classification for Resources and the United Nations Resource Management System Empowering Low-Carbon Energy Solutions in China and Beyond

12 April 2024 11:00 - 13:00

In an era where sustainable development is paramount, the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) and the United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS) are pivotal in driving the transition to low-carbon energy solutions. This webinar delves into the role of these frameworks in empowering nations and industries to harness various resources, with a special emphasis on geothermal energy’s potential.

Participants will explore how the UNFC and UNRMS provide a structured approach to assessing and managing mineral and energy resources, fostering transparency and efficiency. The discussion will focus on various case studies showcasing how integrated resource management can lead to resilient and sustainable energy systems worldwide.
