Setting up regional Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) networks

National LCI networks are supported in Brazil, in Egypt, India, and South Africa. These networks will coordinate with ecoinvent for regional expertise building, networking LCI experts, and LCI data collection. The efforts will be coordinated by established and relevant organisations. The regional networks are expected to develop into self-sustaining LCI/LCA competence centres in the period beyond the SRI project. This will ensure continued collection and updating of the regional LCI data, and thus increase the long-term value of the results.
