Food waste, a chronically overlooked issue, is finally getting the attention it deserves. And it was definitely high time to put the issue on the public agenda, since tackling the incredibly large amounts of food wasted and lost means benefits below the triple bottom line – and with that positive social, environmental and economic impacts.

Soil and land, whether it is biomass in the form of food, feed, bioenergy, or biomaterials, play a crucial role in today’s life and underpin global efforts towards sustainable development. Such natural resources are key components for the fight against poverty, hunger and climate change. Now new studies presented at the 3rd Global Soil Week in Berl...

Extractive resources are non-renewable natural resources and therefore exhaustible, which is why revenues generated from depletion are finite and hereby intrinsically temporary. Also, particularly in the developing world, they account for a large share of several country's overall export structure and often generate the bulk of total government rev...

Many countries in the world are rich in natural resources. And in most cases those natural resources constitute an important engine for the country’s economy, as well as a considerable source of fiscal revenues and foreign exchange. In fact, according to my own research a total of 83 countries and with that an aggregate population of 3.3 billion pe...

There is a broad consensus among scientists and policy makers that the growth rate of the world’s human population and its current rate of consumption are putting global sustainable development at risk. A new study now shows that reducing world popuation most certainly is no environmental "quick fix". Why? Because there are simply yet too many peop...

Natural resources can lead to bad macroeconomic performances and rising inequalities among citizens on the one side, but also go hand in hand with benefits and rising welfare on the other. The key question is why countries such as Botswana, Chile, Indonesia or Malaysia have been developing without serious problems, while others have performed badly...

"Africa is standing on the edge of enormous opportunity and African policy makers and their partners have critical choices to make. They can either invest their natural resource revenue in people to generate jobs and opportunities for millions in present and future generations. Or they can squander this opportunity, allowing jobless growth and ineq...

Geological processes have the result that extractive resources are unevenly spread around the world, leading to the fact that some countries are richly endowed while others do not have any significant amounts of resources at their disposal. Focusing on countries that are endowed with extractive resources, it is of fundamental importance to differ b...

The current commodity boom provides a big opportunity for resource-rich countries in terms of mobilizing additional domestic revenues that could be used for fostering development and transformative growth. However, most countries, particularly in the developing world, have not been able to transform their resource riches for the common good. Why?...
