Programmes on Sustainable
Consumption & Production

Doing more and better with less
How to shift towards SCP?
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
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,
“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
SCP Mandate from Rio to Rio
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?
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

Inter-Agency Coordination Group has been
Objectives: ensure UN cooperation in the implementation of the
10YFP, identifying synergies and joint projects, and engaging UN
agencies in relevant 10YFP activities (e.g. programmes, research,
trainings, national and regional implementation).
19 Agencies :
The first meeting was held on 21‐22 May 2013
Over 108 countries engaged
To date, over 108 countries have nominated their national focal
points and alternates.
Some of them are already taking action on the following areas:
• Support the vision, objectives and goals of the 10YFP.
• Organizing inter‐ministerial national roundtables and dialogues
to coordinate country’s participation and support to the 10YFP
• Exchange and disseminate relevant information on SCP plans,
programmes activities, events, through inter alia, the Global SCP
Clearinghouse, which will serve as the information and
knowledge platform of the 10YFP.
• Developing national SCP Strategies/programmes.
National Focal Points
Could assume the following role:
•Support the vision, objectives and goals of the 10YFP.
•Share information on the 10YFP and enhance interministerial and
•Be the focal point for the 10YFP Board and Secretariat.
• Contribute to the 10YFP implementation (e.g. national rdt, projects, research,
•Exchange and disseminate relevant information on SCP through inter alia, the
Global SCP Clearinghouse,.
•Be the focal point to submit national proposals to the Trust Fund (only for
developing countries & economies in transition)
• Objective: SFP will provide guidance, facilitate and coordinate
the engagement of stakeholders/major groups in the 10YFP
activities and implementation.
• Open and transparent nomination process: UNEP Major
Groups Facilitating Committees and UNDESA/ECOSOC Major
Groups Organising Partners jointly nominates, for each of the
nine Major Groups :

Stakeholder focal points
Objectives: to receive and mobilize resources in a stable,
sustained and predictable manner to develop SCP programmes
in developing countries and countries with economies in
transition, as appropriate, and to promote the transparent
allocation of resources;
Be used to support the implementation of the 10YFP in
developing countries, such as providing seed money for
developing and implementing programme proposals;
Donors, the private sector and others will be encouraged to
contribute to the trust fund, once established, providing
general support to the 10YFP, as well as support to specific
programmes and initiatives responding to the national and
regional priorities of developing countries.

The first 5 indicative and non‐exhaustive list
◦ Consumer information;
◦ Sustainable lifestyles and education;
◦ Sustainable public procurement (SPP);
◦ Sustainable buildings and construction (SBC);
◦ Sustainable tourism, including ecotourism.
◦ Sustainable Food systems
◦ Sustainable Cities
◦ Waste management/minimization
Programmes at the core of the 10YFP
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
