Standard Chartered: Earth’s Resources Conference

20 June, 2012 - 21 June, 2012

Emerging growth in a resource-constrained world


The world’s population has just surpassed seven billion. How can emerging economies sustain growth in a resource-constrained world? With growing pressures from urbanisation, ageing farmers, changing weather patterns and inflationary pressures, Standard Chartered brings together producers, consumers, industry experts and investors to debate these key issues.

There are four tracks across company presentations and panel discussions, featuring topics such as:

  • China’s real liquidity crisis: water
  • Gold – the march to $5,000 per ounce?
  • Edible Oils – the supply gap that is struggling to be filled
  • LNG – the second coming after Fukushima
  • Copper – the ongoing winner from urbanisation


China Water Risk will be participating in two panels :
