The project supports national governments in their development of NAMAs or related mitigation strategies in the agricultural, forestry or related sectors. Companies are encouraged to implement sustainable business models. Consumer awareness at the national level with regard to sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is raised by integrating stakeholders into discussion fora/ platforms and through information and communication campaigns.

Objectives

Government, private sector and consumers in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines have a broad knowledge on sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in the agricultural and forestry or related sectors. SCP principles have been integrated into national policies and business partners are implementing sustainable business practices; a change in consumer behaviour has been initiated by raising awareness for low-carbon goods and services.

Impact and Results

During project implementation, recommendations and guidelines on sustainable consumption and production will be developed and integrated into political strategies. Businesses will be informed about the benefits of sustainable production practices, will be supported to implement those, as well as to communicate these to trading partners - also beyond the project’s duration. The multi-level approach (government, business, and consumers) provides the best opportunities for a long-term impact and broad dissemination.

Through regular sharing of experiences and communication among the target countries, innovative methods will be multiplied and scaled up on a regional level. The close cooperation with the UNEP 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP), the Consumer Information Programme as well as the Food Systems Programme allows a presentation of lessons-learned and newly developed solutions on an international level.
