Re-Assessing Resource Dependency and Criticality: Linking Future Food and Water Stress with Global Resource Supply Vulnerabilities for Foresight Analysis

Re-Assessing Resource Dependency and Criticality: Linking Future Food and Water Stress with Global Resource Supply Vulnerabilities for Foresight Analysis
