SERI input to review of EU “Resource Strategy”

Two important environmental policy strategies of the EU will be reviewed during 2010: the “Thematic Strategy on the Sustainable Use of Natural Resources” and the “Thematic Strategy on the Prevention and Recycling of Waste”. The upcoming Belgian EU presidency therefore organises two expert workshops with attendence of the European Commission, in order to collect and discuss issues, which should be considered in these reviews.

The first workshop focusing on the EU “Resource Strategy” was held on March 15 in Brussels.

Stefan Giljum was invited as one of the panel speakers and presented SERI’s work on global resource flows and European trends in resource consumption and resource efficiency. Furthermore, the talk presented SERI’s demand for inclusion of  targets, policy instruments and a proper set of indicators in the implementation of the “Resource Strategy”.
