The 10‐Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption & Production

  1. 1. The 10‐Year Framework of  Programmes on Sustainable  Consumption & Production  An Overview Kiev 23rd Sept 2013
  2. 2. Doing more and better with less Decoupling 2 How to shift towards SCP?
  3. 3. What is SCP? Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) is  about “the use of services and related products,  which respond to basic needs and bring a better  quality of life while minimizing the use of natural  resources and toxic materials as well as the  emissions of waste and pollutants over the life  cycle of the service or product so as not to  jeopardize the needs of further generations”. (Oslo symposium, 1994) SCP is not necessarily about consuming  less.  It is about doing more and better  with less. 
  4. 4. Agenda 21, adopted in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 “The major cause of the continued deterioration of the global environment  are the unsustainable patterns of consumption and production…” Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI) – 2002 “SCP is one of the overarching objectives of, and essential requirements for,  sustainable development.” “Encourage and promote the development of a 10‐year framework of  programmes (10YFP) in support of regional and national initiatives to  accelerate the shift towards SCP….” Rio+20 – (2012), followed by UNGA 67 SD Res.  “We adopt the 10‐year framework of programmes on SCP patterns, as  contained in document A/CONF.216/5 …” (The Future we Want: Rio+20  Outcome Document).  4 SCP Mandate from Rio to Rio
  5. 5. It is a global framework of action to enhance international  cooperation to accelerate the shift towards SCP in both  developed and developing countries. “ Fundamental changes in the way societies produce and  consume are indispensable for achieving global sustainable  development.... Governments, relevant international  organizations, the private sector and all major groups should  play an active role in changing unsustainable consumption and  production patterns;” (A/CONF.216/5 , para 1.a) What is the 10YFP?
  6. 6. 4 Main Objectives • Accelerate the shift towards SCP  in all countries by supporting regional  and national policies and initiatives. • Increase resource efficiency and decouple economic growth from  environmental degradation, creating decent job and economic  opportunities, contributing to poverty eradication and shared prosperity.  • Support capacity building and facilitate access to financial and technical  assistance for developing countries, supporting the implementation of SCP  activities at the regional, sub‐regional and national levels.  • Serve as an information and knowledge sharing platform on SCP  to  enable all stakeholders to exchange policies, tools, initiatives and best  practices, enhancing cooperation

  14. 14. Programmes  will  serve  as  “umbrellas” that  bring  together  existing  and/or  develop  new  initiatives  and  partnerships  to  fill capacity & knowledge “gaps”.   They  will  build  synergies  and  cooperation  between  stakeholders,  and  allow  scaling  up  and  replication  of  policies,  voluntary  measures,  management  practices,  and  partnerships  promoting  the  shift  to  SCP  patterns,  engaging  governments,  business, civil society, consumers and other major groups. Programmes  are  expected  to  deliver  capacity  building  and  technical  support  as  necessary  at  all  levels:  regional,  sub‐ regional, national and local 10YFP programmes
