What is urban metabolism?

Description

 This short video produced by partners of the UN Environment-led Global Initiative for Resource Efficient Cities, explains the concept of 'urban metabolism' and how it can be  useful to local government. Urban metabolism studies help cities and city regions assess current resource use and identify pathways for improvement. The same principles are outlined in the 2013 International Resource Panel report on city level decoupling.
