About the International Resource Panel 


The Panel comprises 38 experts from leading institutions around the world. It is co-chaired by Janez Potočnik, former European Commissioner for the Environment and European Commissioner for Science and Research, and Izabella Teixeira, former Brazilian Minister of the Environment.  The Panel aims to enhance understanding of sustainable development from a natural resources perspective, providing science-based policy options on how to decouple economic growth from environmental degradation while enhancing human well-being.  Since its inception, the International Resource Panel has published 25 assessments, covering diverse topics such as metals, land use, forests, cities, resource efficiency, and renewable energy. The Panel is increasingly being asked to deliver input to discussions at the highest political level such as UN Environment Assembly, G7 and G20 to support their discussions.
