Indicators on resource use and emissions help monitor patterns and rates of resource use and efficiency in countries. This data is intended to help governments understand how economic growth patterns influence resource use; evaluate the impacts of policies adopted in the past; and develop effective strategies to improve resource efficiency through targeted SCP policies and actions. It includes a two proposed SDG indicators: (1) Domestic Material Consumption (DMC), which is a standard material flow accounting (MFA) indicator measuring the apparent consumption of materials in a national economy; and (2) Material footprint (MF), which is the attribution of global material extraction to domestic final demand of a country.
