Symposium on Experiences on Sustainable Extraction and Use of Natural Resources -- Learning about tools and measures to enhance the sustainability of natural resources in a life cycle perspective.
This symposium is integrated in the FOURTH SETAC WORLD CONGRESS to be held in Portland, Oregon, USA and under the auspices of the UNEP/SETAC Life Cycle Initiative from November 15to 18, 2004.
The intent of this symposium is to learn about tools and measures to enhance sustainable extraction and use of natural resources. A life cycle perspective is taken as starting point, investigating the influence of drivers along the whole extraction-production-use-waste management chains. The resources sectors will include 1) forestry, 2) fishery, 3) agriculture, 4) minerals and metals, 5) fossil fuels and 6) water supply. The measures aiming at enhancing sustainability will be analysed and discussed from an environmental, social and economic angle.
Potential participants are invited to submit abstracts for poster and/or platform presentations at http://www.setac.org/portland.html.
