The World Resources Forum (WRF) is the global science-based platform for sharing knowledge about the economic, political, social and environmental implications of global resource use. WRF promotes innovation for resource productivity by building bridges among researchers, policymakers, business, SMEs, NGOs and the public. Flagship activity is the annual WRF Conference.
This year, over 1,000 participants from 40 countries and international organisations listened to Vice Minister of the Environment Mariano Castro, who closed the three-day conference, organised in the Peruvian city of Arequipa. Castro and his co-chair Xaver Edelmann, President of the WRF, thanked the local community on behalf of all participants for their warm hospitality. They praised the work of the organising teams, from Switzerland and Peru, including the volunteers from Arequipa universities.
