The Natural Resources Forum focuses on international, multidisciplinary issues related to sustainable development and management of natural resources, mainly in developing countries. The journal aims to spread knowledge of subjects of current global concern, and to stimulate discussion. In recent years, social policy and programmes have become more important in the UN's work and the Forum's editorial policy has shifted to reflect this. The journal seeks to present socio-economic policy options for developing countries in order to promote sustainable development of water, energy, minerals and other natural resources. It is our belief that a free, open-ended discussion - a Forum - of ideas, will give rise to realistic alternatives in the quest for sustainable natural resources management.The Natural Resources Forum was first launched in 1976 by the then United Nations Centre for Natural Resources, Energy and Transport, and is currently issued by the Division for Sustainable Development in the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The ideas presented in the journal are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United Nations. Authors are fully responsible for their statements, and publication of articles does not imply official UN or DESA policy or endorsement.
