Scoping exercise involved a debate on the expected state of the world in 2030 (demographics, scarcity, energy, growth, development, trade flows, etc.), as well as the role of government, business, NGOs, and international organizations. Experts also discussed the future interface between natural resources and the trade and investment frameworks, in order to identify the major challenges and opportunities for a conducive system.
