Advancing and Measuring Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) for a Low-Carbon Economy in Middle-Income and Newly Industrialized Countries (Advance SCP)
As of: May 2018
Objective and activities
Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) patterns constitute an essential building block of a low-carbon economy. The project will contribute to the implementation of the six programmes under the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP) in 8 developing countries across three regions (Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America). Based on the level of advancement of pilot countries with regard to SCP and their specific needs, the project will support the development and implementation of Sustainability Information Systems (SIS ). These shall form the basis for informed consumer decisions, which result in decreased greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improved resource efficiency all along the value chain. Activities will focus on institutional strengthening, technical capacity development, knowledge transfer and the design of integrated policy frameworks. In this context, the project will also identify and develop NAMA opportunities.
