Financing body

UNEP - United Nations Environement Programme


In this project the research group Sustainable Resource Use continues its work with partner institutions in Australia and Japan to further develop and update the global database on worldwide material extraction commissioned and made publicly available by the UNEP International resource Panel (IRP). The data update will also figure prominently in the first regular report of the IRP and will continue to be important into the future also in regard to monitoring the SDGs related to material use and waste. Data processing procedures will be standardised and the whole time series re-established from source data. Further, it is planned to provide data for the 2014-2018 period by means of advanced now-casting methods.
