Effective natural resource management for inclusive and sustainable growth in the context of increased scarcity and climate change: What roles for the public and private sectors? - European Report on Development 2011-2012 consultation

8 - 9 June 2011
Consultation
German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)
Details

The 2012 European Report on Development (ERD), the third such report to be published by the EU, will focus on how natural resource management can promote sustainable and inclusive growth. Within this overall theme the report will start from a contextual analysis of increasing scarcity and the effects of climate change, and will explore the actual and possible roles of public and private actors (both for-profit and non-profit) as they engage in the management of water, energy and land in order to promote inclusive and sustainable growth. The ERD outline argues that increased scarcity has highlighted the existence of a water-energy-land (WEL) nexus, which suggests that appropriate natural resource management needs to be integrated and take into account the interdependencies amongst resources.
The report will have the following structure: Chapters 2 and 3 will set out the new context for natural resource management (scarcity, climate change) and chapter 4 will outline the analytical framework. Chapters 5, 6 and 7 will provide specific case-study analysis on land, water and energy issues related to the nexus. Chapters 8 and 9 will in turn look at the contributions that the private sector (in its broadest sense) and the public sector (at different levels) make to the governance and management of land, water and energy. Finally, Chapter 10 will look at roles for the EU to play in the context of the report.
The ERD 2012 has already been discussed in a series of consultation meetings in London, Brussels and Maastricht earlier this year.
