To register your interest in attending this symposium Register

The next Frontiers of Development symposium will take place virtually between 2-12 November 2020, focusing on the theme of resilient resource use.

Our current use of resources is not sustainable, resilient, or easily adaptable to new or alternative modes of use. Further, it is inequitably distributed both geographically and societally. Key questions the event will address include:

  • How do we build resilience in the world of shared resources?
  • How can we develop a pattern of resource use that is equitable, resilient and sustainable in societal, economic and environmental terms, bearing in mind all relevant factors including climate change, population growth and the socio-geo-political environment?
  • What are some practical solutions to ensure resilient resource use?
  • How do we improve human resources, such as through education, nutrition and skills?
  • How do we make sure that our natural resources, such as water and air, are used and accessed equitably and sustainably?
  • How can we use economic resources and incentives to encourage responsible behaviour?
