One Planet Multi-Partner Trust Fund for SDG 12
Supporting countries in the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 12 (SDG 12) for integrated action at national level.
“Governments, businesses and households will all need to change behaviours, with a view to ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns.” Addis Ababa Action Agenda, Financing for Development, 2015
Partner UN Agencies:
The Fund is a pooled funding mechanism for cohesive action to support countries in assessing, designing, prioritizing and implementing policies and practices for Sustainable Consumption and Production, bringing together the expertise of the One Planet network members and the comparative advantages of the participating UN agencies.
For more information on the Fund, please downloand the brochure.
Entry points for the highest positive impacts: It is important to prioritise measures, through sectors and hotspots of key value chains to identify where the greatest opportunity for improvement occurs. For example:
The buildings and construction sector accounts for 39% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions, including 11% from the manufacturing
The food sector is the dominant user of natural resources. Food systems, considered from production to consumption, are responsible for up to 37% of global GHG emissions, 60% of global terrestrial biodiversity loss, and the overexploitation of 20% of the world’s aquifers.
PROJECTS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Multi-agency support to UN Country Teams in mainstreaming resource efficiency in the housing, buildings, and construction sector
The project aims to integrate resource efficiency into the building’s life cycle by equipping UN Country Teams (UNCTs) with the necessary tools and information to reach the following expected outcomes:
- Strengthened national commitments and objectives for sustainable buildings and construction in two countries;
- Strengthened technical resources to support governments in mainstreaming sustainability, resource efficiency, and climate change in the buildings and construction sector.
- Enhanced capacities to utilize the potential of the buildings and construction sector to raise resources for the implementation of national sustainable development plans and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
- Integration of sustainable procurement in the technical support provided.
