Saleem Ali selected for United Nations International Resource panel

University of Delaware’s Saleem Ali has been named to the United Nations International Resource Panel, a select group of 38 scientists and practitioners worldwide chosen to advise the UN system on resource management issues. Launched in 2007 by the UN Environment, the International Resource Panel works “to build and share the knowledge needed to improve our use of resources worldwide,” including scientific assessment on the sustainable use of the planet’s natural resources and their environmental impacts.

Ali will serve a five-year, renewable term on the panel’s resource governance working group. Initial projects include two collaborative reports aimed at improving resource governance mechanisms worldwide, and understanding the impact of resource efficiency on climate change mitigation.
