Resource efficiency beyond GDP


The established indicator for resource efficiency measures the relation between GDP and use of natural resource. We will discuss options of going beyond GDP by focusing on the satisfaction of human needs and welfare. Instead of answering how many resources are needed for the production of goods and services, we want to propose a conceptual framework to address the question of how many resources are required to meet human needs and quality of life for all people.

The session is organized by the EU research project DESIRE (DEvelopment of a System of Indicators for Resource Efficiency).
