Objectives

The central theme of the 14th APRSCP is about “Agenda of Change,” change in the government by mainstreaming SCP policies, engaging the business and industry sector, and involving other stakeholders and the community through innovation, experience, and real implementation on the ground to contribute to the - measurable - implementation of the SDGs (beyond Goal 12) .

The theme will also reflect the relevant issues at the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) in sustainable development: “Transformation Towards Resilient and Sustainable Societies” held last July 2018 in New York and the upcoming COP 24 UNFCCC in Poland: “Changing Together.”

The Objectives of the 14th APRSCP are as follows:
• To provide a dialogue platform among effective change agents as decision-makers influencing regional and national implementation of SCP towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) particularly SDG 12 and SCP-related Goals.
• To discuss the need for systemic change and action on the ground by forming a community of practice through innovations, stake-holder collaborations, and advancing information sharing and knowledge platforms on SCP.
• To encourage and support discussion on emerging issues on SCP including the development of links on SDGs global/regional initiatives on SCP to improve cross-information and coordination between key regional/international partners on SCP related issues.
• To provide a dialogue platform, sharing experiences about business and industries initiatives on SCP and integrated resources efficiency solutions and production growth for better decision-making on SCP through innovation and investments
