The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MOEF&CC), Government of India (GoI) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), jointly with the Indian knowledge partners - The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Development Alternatives and the European knowledge partners - Institut für Energie- und Umweltforschung (IFEU), and VDI Zentrum Ressourceneffizienz GmbH (VDI-ZRE), organized a multi-stakeholder workshop with the objective to understand the rationale, scope and challenges of resource use and needs in India and its implications for sustainable growth.

The workshop launched the Indian Resource Panel (InRP) as one of the institutional mechanisms to highlight the main challenges with regard to resource use, suggest possible resource management options, and take forward the need for a policy level intervention focussing on fostering resource efficiency and reuse of secondary raw materials. The workshop also presented the findings of the baseline study on the Mobility and Construction sectors considering the selected minerals and metals critical to the Indian economy and analysis of the resource efficiency potentials.
