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.
We are pleased to announce that two webinars will be organised to discuss how to use life cycle analysis tools to improve resource efficiency and sustainable consumption and production patterns through the case of Peru. Life cycle analysis is a powerful methodology for consumer information providing robust data to take inform decisions whether you are a policy maker, company or individual. The Peruvian LCA Network will present the input-output calculator to assess environmental impacts and PERU LCA.

According to FAO studies on food losses and waste, over 20% of all food wastes in the EU member states occur in the production and post-harvest phases. In the roots and tubers crops losses are even higher (≈ 30%) and they are due to the retailing quality standards and gradings. Timac Agro Italia supported by its partnerships and in collaboration with multiple stakeholders, will mobilise its research infrastructure and its extension services to create innovative products, to support Italian sugar beet growers, to improve the quality and the quantity of production, reducing at the same time the negative externalities generated along the growing cycle.
This will assist the sector to reduce food losses and waste and therefore to reach the second of the SDGs (zero hunger), specifically the third and fourth targets and make sugar beet agro-systems more sustainable, and able to generate [beside being economically competitive] maximum positive environmental externalities to create wealth and to improve health of the Italian and EU societies (integration of the 3 sustainability dimensions).
This initiative will be accompanied by different field events, workshops and publications for extension and dissemination of results and awareness of stakeholders at all levels about more sustainable sugar beet agro-systems.
