The UNECE Expert Group on Resource Management (EGRM) has initiated work on the United Nations Resource Management System (UNRMS) to aid integrated and sustainable resources management. UNRMS will be an extension of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC), a unified system for the classification of a broad range of resources. You are kindly requested to contribute to a survey to help EGRM understand stakeholder requirements and help build UNRMS such that it is fit for purpose. The questionnaire will take about 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your participation!

UNRMS will be a comprehensive, sustainable resource management system that is expected to be future-facing and support stakeholders in attaining various goals, including aiding the progress towards a circular economy. One of the benefits of UNRMS will be to support higher-order decision-making that encompasses land-use planning and strategic assessment of resources at national or regional scales hence enabling better and more efficient decision-making. In this manner, UNRMS will bring a holistic, programmatic, systems and life cycle view of resource management that will plug into the resource-specific and project-based classification of UNFC and implementation of projects.
