    UNECE Resource Management Week 2021

    15:00 – 17:00Online

    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.

    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.

    In this context, EuroGeoSurveys will co-host a session entitled "Session 10: Workshop - UNFC in action: Progress towards a modern view on integrated resource management", for showcasing EGS present initiatives and future plans while sharing case studies and best practices from current projects and Geological Surveys.

    For more information about the session, please check the programme.

    Registration is currently open until 30 April 2021: https://indico.un.org/event/34907/.
