Global resource use is expected to double between 2010 and 2030 according to the Sustainable Europe Research Institute. Intensified resource use exerts an increasing pressure on the environment, through impacts associated with resource extraction, use and disposal. Geographic concentration of reserves in a limited number of countries is a concern since it gives suppliers considerable influence over global prices and supplies.
The experts of the Interreg Europe Environment and Resource Efficiency Policy Learning Platform have developed a Policy Brief on the role of cities and regions in promoting resource efficiency across the European Union. It highlights the need to use resources in a sustainable way and presents key policy developments in this direction. Emphasis is put on policy actions by cities and regions.
