The WRF is a global science-based platform for sharing knowledge on the economic, political, social and environmental implications of global resource use. It promotes innovation for resource productivity by forging working relationships among researchers, policymakers, businesses, non-governmental organisations and the public. This annual conference is the WRF’s flagship activity. As it will attract over around 700 scientists, researchers, officials and academics from all over the world, it is expected that the conference will contribute to the debates of the Conference of the Parties (COP 20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, which will take place in Peru in December 2014.
The programme will include presentations and statements from high-level politicians, economic leaders and academic experts. There will also be workshops scientific sessions and special events. Researchers, students, practitioners and other experts in resource use and resource management are invited to submit their abstract of approximately 300 words on the topics by 25 April 2014.
The programme will be finalised in April.
