Co-Chair, International Resource Panel
The International Resource Panel (IRP) was launched by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 2007 to build and share the knowledge needed to improve our use of resources worldwide.
The Panel consists of eminent scientists, highly skilled in resource management issues. Their reports distil the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic findings around global resource use. They provide advice and connections between policymakers, industry and the community on ways to improve global and local resource management. The Panel includes scientists and governments from both developed and developing regions, civil society, industrial and international organisations. The Panel’s goal is to steer us away from overconsumption, waste and ecological harm to a more prosperous and sustainable future. Dr. Ashok Khosla has taken a lead role in providing a strategic direction to the panel in work towards a sustainable world.
