Sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cannot
be achieved without the sustainable management and the efficient use of
natural resources. UNEP's International Resource Panel (IRP) has intensively
examined this link. This session will be an opportunity to present the
wealth of the scientific findings of the IRP on these issues.

The IRP adopts an integrated systemic approach, accounting for the holistic
nature of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the interlinkages,
synergies and trade-offs between and within the different resource-related
SDGs. In addition to presenting IRP’s findings and messages, this session
will also provide space for open discussion among scientists, policymakers
and private sector representatives on the actions and policies needed on the
way forward for turning our commitments into action.
