This report presents global projections of materials use and their environmental consequences, providing a quantitative outlook to 2060 at the global, sectoral and regional levels for 61 different materials (biomass resources, fossil fuels, metals and non-metallic minerals).Read more
This report contributes to the discussion of interconnections between scarce resources by highlighting the nexus between land, water and energy (the LWE nexus). It focuses on a dynamic, integrated, and disaggregated analysis of how land, water and energy interact in the biophysical and economic systems.Read more
This report provides a comprehensive assessment of the economic consequences of outdoor air pollution in the coming decades, focusing on the impacts on mortality, morbidity, and changes in crop yields as caused by high concentrations of pollutants. Unless more stringent policies are adopted, findings point to a significant increase in global emissions and concentrations of air pollutants, with severe impacts on human health and the environment.Read more
The OECD's environmental indicators, constantly developed and refined since the 1990s, and its modelling and prospective work, serve as a basis for sound and informed green growth policies.

When: Monday 18 February 2019 - 17:00 (CET Paris time) / 11:00 (EST)
Subject: Materials use to 2060: Economic drivers and environmental consequences
The world’s consumption of raw materials is set to nearly double by 2060 as the global economy expands and living standards rise, placing twice the pressure on the environment than we are seeing today.
» What economic mechanisms drive material use and how will this affect the environment?
Join our team of experts of the OECD Environment Directorate to learn more about projections for materials use to 2060.
The talk will highlight findings from the report Global Material Resources Outlook to 2060: Economic Drivers and Environmental Consequences.
Duration: 1 hour (presentation of 20-30 minutes followed by Q&A).
