8.4.2 Domestic material consumption, domestic material consumption per capita, and domestic material consumption per GDP
Material Flows Accounting is a well-established methodology with a strong conceptual basis in Physical accounting and economics. UN Environment proposes a two-pronged approach to capacity building, which is enhancing the accounting capabilities for Domestic material consumption (DMC) and Material footprint (MF) within countries, while at the same time supporting the UN Environment International resource panel (IRP), in continuing to update the global database and encouraging countries to verify and adopt the dataset made available by UN Environment to fill the gap until capacity is available in all regions and countries. The detailed metadata is shown in this document.
