"SCP at the Global Level" and "SCP at the Regional Level" in Global Outlook on Sustainable Consumption and Production Policies
The report Global Outlook on Sustainable Consumption and Production [SCP] Policies, developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) with the financial support of the European Commission, provides a non-exhaustive review of policies and initiatives that are promoting the shift towards SCP patterns.
It is illustrated by 56 case studies ranging from global multilateral agreements and regional strategies to specific policies and initiatives being implemented by governments, businesses and civil society organizations.
This text seeks to provide information about existing activities promoting SCP, to identify best practices, and to provide recommendations to adapt, replicate and scale up SCP policies and initiatives contributing to the overarching goal of achieving sustainable development.
The chapter "SCP at the Global Level" looks at some of the most important policies and initiatives promoting SCP at a global level, and the chapter "SCP at the Regional Level" provides an introduction to the report's regional chapters on SCP.
