The Blueprint is a key output from the 3rd Sustainable Phosphorus Summit hosted by the Global Phosphorus Research Initiative co-founder, the Institute for Sustainable Futures at the University of Technology, Sydney (Feb-Mar 2012). 

Designed with input from delegates during Summit workshops and plenary sessions, the Blueprint outlines the principles, challenges and opportunities involved in achieving global phosphorus security. It recommends initiatives, strategies, roles and responsibilities to identified stakeholders.

We know that for a variety of reasons, innovative measures to recycle phosphorus and use the nutrient more efficiently need to increase considerably. The next step is for policy-makers to develop effective policy frameworks to stimulate and support such sustainable phosphorus measures.

Phosphorus security means ensuring that all farmers have sufficient access to phosphorus to produce enough food to feed the global population.

We would appreciate it if you could distribute the Blueprint widely to your relevant networks. 

Thank you and we hope to see you at the 4th Sustainable Phosphorus Summit in Montpellier September 2014!
