This series of events was brought to you by the European Commission, UNEP, GLOBE and IEEP, to address the question:
"How research can best inform the transition to a green economy"
We hosted a series of events both in Brussels and Rio de Janeiro, and document the process on this blog. You can also find information on relevant projects, interviews with event participants, key messages developed at different events, and questions raised along the way.
Look at Our Events page to see how the events happened.
This series of events was lead by KNOSSOS, a project aimed at bridging the gap between science and policy, and funded by the EU 7th Framework Programme.
“Concrete measures include institutionalising targets and indicators on resource efficiency for key resources——such as land, water, materials, carbon and nutrients——helping policy integration and the monitoring of related efforts.”
“Science helps policy makers to make informed decisions. Science can tell us where we will need water in the future and how this will affect communities in these areas,”
