Abstract (German)

DESIRE develops and applies an optimal set of indicators to monitor European progress towards resource-efficiency. A combination of time series of environmentally extended input output data (EE IO) and the DPSIR framework to construct the indicator set is proposed. This approach will use a single data set that allows for consistent construction of resource efficiency indicators capturing the EU, country, sector and product group level, and the production and consumption perspective including impacts outside the EU. The project significantly contributes to the further development of multi-regional input-output (MRIO) analysis.
Role and responsibilities of the WU team in the project:
• Analysis of resource efficiency policies
• Development of an indicator framework for resource efficiency
• Calculate material and land footprint indicators with MRIO methods
