Establish Low Carbon Consumption and Production in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines (“SCP TIP”)
As of: September 2018
Objective and activities
The project supports national governments in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines with the development of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) as well as concrete, sectoral mitigation strategies. It holds discussion forums with key stakeholders as well as consulting and assisting private companies with the implementation of sustainable business models. Additionally, information and communication campaigns are used to strengthen local awareness of sustainable methods of production and consumption. The thematic priorities are country-specific. In Thailand, the emphasis lies on mitigation strategies for the forestry and agricultural sector, particularly on maize. Activities in Indonesia focus on the agricultural sector, particularly on palm-oil production and the implementation of sustainable business models. In the Philippines, the project focuses on developing emission-reduction strategies for the food service industry, with a particular emphasis on the tourism sector.
