Increasing Resource Productivity to Fight Poverty and Climate Change
This year’s World Resources Forum (WRF 2017) was held on 24 – 25 October 2017 at the Centre International de Conférences (CICG) in Geneva, Switzerland. WRF 2017 addressed the topic of Accelerating the Resource Revolution, highlighting the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement as calls for action. More than 450 participants from 50 countries shared four days of discussions, networking and side events.

Over 160 state-of-the-art scientific contributions were presented and methodologies and success stories were shared during the 16 workshops organised by international institutions. Find an overview of the WRF 2017 in this News Article and here the presentations of our plenary speakers
