UNECE Resource Management Week 2021 - 12th Session of the Expert Group on Resource Management

Palais des Nations, Geneva , Switzerland and ONLINE

26 April (10:00) - 30 April (18:00) 2021
Palais des Nations Geneva Switzerland

Programme: Week Overview

Detailed Programme

Government policymakers, industry leaders, investment managers and civil society organizations are working to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to accelerate decarbonization of society. Attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require secure and sustainable supply of natural resources, but the production and use of those natural resources should not undermine the very SDGs they are intended to support. 

Sustainability principles in resource management provide handrails that can guide society towards a future that enriches natural capital rather than diminishing it. Linear models of production and consumption of resources produce waste, pollution and carbon emissions. These models must be replaced by new circular models that distribute resources equitably and minimize externalities.  

The UNECE Resource Management Week 2021 will take place at the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland and online from 26–30 April 2021. The Week will showcase outstanding results in the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) worldwide and global commitment to the United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS). UNFC and UNRMS under development by the Expert Group provide essential tools for applying sustainability principles and hence transforming resource management in a way that leaves everyone (and the planet!) better off.    

You are invited to join the Week, participate in the discussions and learn how sustainability principles can contribute to policy formulation, national resource management and financial reporting. The Week will comprise a number of sessions via the Interprefy platform with simultaneous interpretation in English, French and Russian. Other sessions will be in English only via Webex. Subject to the COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time, participation will be possible in person in Geneva. Registration is mandatory whether participating in person or online. All registered participants will be provided with connection details closer to the event.
