On 27 March, 2020, the Ministry of the Environment, Japan launched a portal site for the “G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue”. As part of the support provided to the government, IGES has contributed to the development of this site.
A decision was taken by the G20 members to establish the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, held on 7-8 July, 2017. The key aim of this Dialogue is to ensure that efficient and sustainable use of natural resources is incorporated as a core element of the G20 talks. Subsequently, the G20 members and related stakeholders have advocated a resource-efficient and sustainable global economy and have promoted sustainable consumption and production patterns within the G20 and beyond, in order to achieve the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), combat poverty, take action on the climate and protect the environment.
At the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue held under the Japanese presidency in Tokyo last October, it was agreed to launch a website for the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue to ensure timely and regular sharing of information as mentioned in the Roadmap for the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue. Based on this agreement, this portal site was prepared and launched with the support of the Ministry of the Environment, Japan. IGES has provided support to the development of the site and will continue to make contributions to its management as part of overall support to the Roadmap.
