Global Material Flows and Demand-Supply Forecasting for Mineral Strategies – Workshop Brief

Global Material Flows and Demand-Supply Forecasting for Mineral Strategies – Workshop Brief

MinFuture Workshop Synthesis Brief

The MinFuture workshop "Enhancing data robustness on global level" served to present and test the MinFuture approach of placing statistical data in a system context so that global information flows on mineral raw material become less fragmented and provide a more complete, comprehensive and realistic picture. The MinFuture Workshop Synthesis Brief is available for download.
