Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP): Targets and Indicators and the SDGs
The United Nations and its Member States are currently crafting a post-2015 development agenda to build on the Millennium Development Goals.
Outcomes of previous UN Summits, including Rio+20 in 2012, have shown that the objective of shifting to sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns is central to achieving sustainable development. Negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, and on the associated sustainable development goals (SDGs), indicate that there is strong interest in many Member States in embedding the objective of SCP in both. The present discussion paper provides insights into potential targets and indicators for SCP, based on the scientific literature, as well as on past and on-going international processes on sustainable development policy.
