FORAM- Towards a World Forum on Raw Materials
3 years ago Ruediger Kuehr Comments Off on FORAM- Towards a World Forum on Raw Materials
The project ‘Towards a World Forum on Raw Materials’ (FORAM) will develop and set up an EU-based platform of international experts and stakeholders that will advance the idea of a world forum on raw materials and enhance the international cooperation on raw material policies and investments.
FORAM Map of Initiatives
The FORAM project mapped multi-stakeholder initiatives linked to raw materials. More than one hundred initiatives are included in the ‘Geo-Map’, with information on the year of establishment, the organizational structure, the number of stakeholders, the location, and a link to the website for each initiative.
Directory of Databases
The FORAM project created an overview of available data on primary and secondary raw materials. This overview consists of pre-existing web-databases compiled into one directory. The directory focuses on different categories connected to available information on primary and secondary raw materials. These categories cover:
- the use and needs of raw materials in industrial sectors important for the EU economy and society;
- overall resources, geological distribution, general availability, and accessibility;
- geopolitical, economic, and financial information;
- current status of use, re-use, recycling, substitution of raw materials;
- ecological and social impact.
