Global Resources Outlook 2019: Natural Resources for the Future We Want - Summary for Policymakers
United Nations Environment Programme, International Resource Panel

Modelling undertaken by the International Resource Panel shows that with the right resource e ciency and sustainable consumption and production policies in place, by 2060 growth in global resource use can slow by 25 per cent, global gross domestic product could grow 8 per cent – especially for low- and middle-income na- tions – and greenhouse gas emissions could be cut by 90 per cent compared with projections for continuing along historical trends. Such projections are based on the understanding that growth rates in emerging and oth- er developing economies must be balanced by absolute reductions in resource use in developed countries.

A Case of Benign Neglect: Knowledge Gaps About Sustainability in Pastoralism and Rangelands - Executive Summary
United Nations Environment Programme, GRID-Arendal

Pastoralism is practiced by millions of people worldwide. It has roots in every part of the world and back thousands of years to the beginning of agriculture. But while pastoral societies have existed for millennia, we still don’t know that much about the interlinkages between pastoral practices and the rangelands these depend upon. It’s as if they are invisible in a lot of research about the global environment. There are many questions we cannot answer today with confidence because of widespread gaps in understanding rangelands and pastoralists. Yet, the answers to these questions have profound implications for national and global policy – and influence on how we will deal with climate change. This report directly responds to one of the resolutions approved at the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) in May 2016, which acknowledges the dearth of information on pastoralism and rangelands. The resolution calls for a gap analysis of environmental and socioeconomic information and the provision of technical support for promoting pastoralism and rangelands. This report is also guided by the mandate of UN Environment to conduct integrated assessments and analyses, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and specifically the SDGs and their targets and indicators related to pastoralism and rangelands.

Monitoring the Shift to Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns in the context of the SDGs: Advance Copy 2016-02-23: Executive Summary
United Nations Environment Programme

This report constitutes an initial proposal to support the monitoring of SCP-related targets of the SDGs, using the SEEA framework. The report also proposes the development of a strategy for capacity building in the context of responding to the need for harmonised and quality assured indicators. Based on this approach and the analysis undertaken for this paper, we will also discuss more general indicators than those developed by the IAEG-SDGs process.

The Financial System We Need: From Momentum to Transformation - Highlights
United Nations Environment Programme

This follow-up annual report reveals a doubling in policy actions over the past five years to align the global financial system with sustainable development. Policy and regulatory measures by finance ministries, central banks and financial regulators to promote sustainable finance have risen to 217 and now exist in nearly 60 countries. The report calls for more effort to turn this momentum into genuine global transformation and makes a series of recommendations to help accelerate this process. - See more at: http://unepinquiry.org/publication/the-financial-system-we-need-from-mom...
