U.S. EPA Sustainable Materials Management Web Academy Webinar

There is growing recognition that the current global use of resources and materials to meet human needs may lead to potential environmental, economic and social challenges. U.S. EPA will be joined by speakers from two international organizations that recently released reports investigating and understanding trends in and potential consequences of global materials use.

Dr. Bruno Oberle will provide insights on work of the United Nations Environment's International Resource Panel, which consists of scientists skilled in resource management issues whose reports distill scientific, technical and socio-economic findings around global resource use. And Ruben Bibas will provide a presentation on the work by the Organization for Co-operation and Development (OECD), which is a forum where 36-member countries work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems.
