The Advance SCP project promotes sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns in eight emerging economies spread across SouthEast Asia, Africa and Latin America. The project takes the countries’ needs and preferences into consideration. UN Environment-led activities in Peru aim to develop Life Cycle Inventory data for refineries, hydroelectric power plants and landfills and a National Economic Input-Output Life Cycle Assessment (EIO-LCA) database; apply Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology and develop environmental profiles and sustainability criteria for 3 products prioritized for Sustainable Public Procurement; and update/strengthen existing NAMA for the Energy and/or Waste sector.
The NESI Forum has been held in Málaga (Spain) in April 2019.
Here you can access to the key findings about CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION extracted from the conversations of 800 experts discussing an co-creating the basis for a new economy to achieve SDG Goals in 2030.
This document has been written by Amaya Apesteguía, Carlos Trías, Cristian Figueroa, Leire Iriarte and Nuria Fernández Muñiz, based on the discussions and recommendations of the NESI FORUM 2019
International Forum "U.S. - E.U.: Environmental Law Colloquium", Center for American Studies of Rome - May 30, 2019
The “U.S.–E.U.: Environmental Law Colloquium” aims to encourage participation and collaboration between American and European Scholars on a regular basis, to share the progress of our researches and to launch new initiatives and projects for the implementation of the environmental policies.

Impulsando el Consumo Sostenible en América Latina - Driving Sustainable Consumption in Latin America with Better Product Information and Design
The project in Latin America with a focus on Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico promotes sustainable consumption through the implementation of SCP tools of the One Planet network. This includes support of the regional eco-label Sello Ambiental Americas.
The HORTI-GREEN project aims to foster the adoption of SCP practices in the Kenyan horticultural processing industry in order to support the transformation towards an inclusive green economy which generates growth, creates jobs and reduces poverty. The action is specifically aimed at equipping the stakeholders with the necessary knowledge and tool to promote and adopt SCP practices and seize green economy opportunities. The action was awarded a grant under the Switch Africa Green Programme.
Although the hospitality sector is responsible for only about 1% of the greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, it needs to cut its emission levels given the strong growth in tourism expected for the years to come. Improved energy efficiency should also result in lower operating costs.
The annual GSTC Conference, the Global Sustainable Tourism Conference 2018 (GSTC2018), addressed topics based on the Kasane Call to Action to accelerate sustainable consumption and production (SCP):
• Achieving Sustainable Destination Management
• Certification as a Driver of Sustainable Tourism
• Reaching the SDGs through the GSTC Criteria
• Market Access for Responsible Tourism Businesses
It has brought together 150 delegates from 26 countries.
Moderator: Helena Rey (UN Environment)
Speakers: Peter Debrine (UNESCO World Heritage Centre), Adam Markham (Union of Concerned Scientists)
The webinar discussed the need to improve collaboration with national multi-stakeholder networks to build resilience to develop destination-level data sets. The discussion also emphasized the role of effective monitoring and data collection practices in protecting World Heritage Sites.
Overall objective of the project is to strengthen and mobilize research and innovation capacity in the area into solving key renewable energy issues, thus contributing to renewable energy utilization through smart secure, competitive and sustainable cross-border Micro Power Plant initiative.Project output is: Hybrid solar-wind power module for Micro power plants (MPP) developed, put to production and promoted. Awareness raising and promotion is part of the sustainability, along with education.
The CRC for Low Carbon Living (CRCLCL) is a national research and innovation hub, enabling a globally competitive low carbon built environment sector.
Focusing on collaborative innovation, we bring together property, planning, engineering and policy organisations with leading Australian researchers. The CRCLCL develops new social, technological and policy tools for facilitating the development of low carbon products and services to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the built environment.
Small groups of diverse buildings can provide opportunities for system synergies that will reduce GHG emissions. We refer to such a group of buildings as a Synergy Zones. The system includes on-site renewable energy, energy storage, DC distribution and equipment, thermal energy, greywater and control systems. We seek to balance supply and demand with control systems and appropriate algorithms.
