Sustainable use and management of natural resources

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This report focuses on our ability to continue to provide for our needs by drawing on the natural world. Given the broad coverage of the term 'natural resources', a decision was made at the outset to focus the analysis on a selection of natural resources: fisheries, forestry, water, fossil fuels, metals and construction minerals, and land use. The factors behind this choice included ensuring a mix of renewable and non-renewable resources, the policy relevance and political importance of the resources, and the ability to illustrate the various policy approaches.
