Professor Ramaswami Attends International Resource Panel in Vietnam

Professor Anu Ramaswami is currently in Hanoi, Vietnam as part of the 16th Meeting of the International Resource Panel (IRP) and its Steering Committee.

The IRP was launched by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 2007 to build and share the knowledge needed to improve our use of resources worldwide. The Panel’s goal is to steer us away from over-consumption, waste and ecological harm towards a more prosperous and sustainable future.

The core objectives of this meeting are to review the progress in the preparation of on-going IRP assessment reports, examine new study proposals, and explore the policy-relevance of the Panel’s new findings.

As one of the IRP's panel members, Professor Ramaswami is responsible for helping to develop the IRP program of work, and to highlight important research opportunities within her international, regional and national networks.
