08 - Material flows data

Video Recording

<p>The material flows data is at the core of our system.</p>
<p>How to get this data?</p>
<p>There is an incredible diversity at material flows data: from imports of goods to agricultural production, and from emissions to air to consumption of water. This kind of information must therefore be searched for on a sector-by-sector basis. Tackle a specific sector (say water, energy, or transport), and identify the relevant flows. Then, look at the relevant authorities and companies in this sector, and see if you can find datasets - or if you can speak with relevant people.</p>
