What is the 10YFP?
At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, Heads of State adopted the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production patterns (10YFP), a global framework of action to enhance international cooperation to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in both developed and developing countries.
The Mid-term Review of the Framework (carried out in 2017-2018) identified the commitment made in 2012 and the multi-stakeholder network that has formed to support its implementation - the One Planet network - as key elements that have the potential to be transformational. The Review also highlighted the inclusion of Sustainable Development Goal 12 on “ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns” in the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development - whose first target specifically calls for the implementation of the 10YFP - as a key opportunity to leverage.
The objectives of the 10YFP, as originally formulated in 2012, are:
- Accelerate the shift towards SCP, supporting regional and national policies and initiatives.
- Contributing to resource efficiency and decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation and resource use, while creating decent jobs and economic opportunities and contributing to poverty eradication and shared prosperity.
- Mainstream SCP into sustainable development policies, programmes and strategies, as appropriate, including into poverty reduction strategies.
- Support capacity building and facilitate access to financial and technical assistancefor developing countries, supporting the implementation of SCP activities at the regional, sub-regional and national levels.
- Enable all stakeholders to share information and knowledge on SCP tools, initiatives and best practices, raising awareness and enhancing cooperation and development of new partnerships – including public-private partnerships
Since the adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, the One Planet network has expanded on these goals to develop a common approach around which the entire network can rally - One Planet for One Planet .
