Natural Resources Forum - A United Nations Sustainable Development Journal, a quarterly journal issued by the Division for Sustainable Development of the United Nations, calls for papers for upcoming issues.

Contributions that inform the global policy debate through pragmatic lessons learned from experience at the local, national, and global levels are encouraged.

1) Relevance and importance of the topic discussed to sustainable development in general, both in terms of policy impacts and gaps in current knowledge being addressed by the article;
