2015 catalogue of material resource efficiency - country graphs
This page presents a set of graphs on the use of material resources and management of municipal waste, included in the optional Question 20 for the 2015 catalogue of material resource efficiency policies. For most of the graphs, you can customize the way they show country-specific trends in material resource use and efficiency.

Article Consuming unsustainably
Key message: A major reason why consumption negatively affects the environment and causes over-use of resources is because the costs to society of environmental and resource degradation are not fully reflected in the prices of goods and services. Many goods are cheap even though they harm the environment, ecosystems or human health. (SOER 2010)

Article Eyewitness: the boy Chance
Bisie is the biggest mine in the area. It is located approximately 90 kilometres inside dense forest and reaches 100 metres underground. The mines are often little more than a hole in the ground. Dozens of men and boys crowd each mine and conditions are atrocious.

File Food consumption patterns
(Transcription of audio on video) Industrialised countries have made significant improvements to their energy and resource efficiency, but some of the gain has been offset by more widespread consumption. Some of this is to do with our food production. It takes approximately 1,000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of wheat, over two and a half times that to produce 1 kg of eggs, and a massive 13 and a half times that amount of water to produce 1 kg of beef. If the entire global population were to adopt a western-style diet, about 75% more water would be needed for food production. Source: SOER 2005
