[November 2011] - Twin Briefing Paper on Energy and Mineral Resource Security
In a twin briefing paper published by the Clingendael International Energy Programme (CIEP) and the German Geological Survey (BGR) the fierce debate about resource security is addressed and examined critically. Their conclusion is that a large part of this debate revolves about misconceptions and a skewed portrayal of facts, which increases the risk of exaggerated policy responses. Rather than alarmism, the authors propose a balanced approach to energy and mineral resource security.
