The initiative aims to ensure all tourism activities in destinations with protected areas and cultural heritage sites are sustainably certified by 2030 as part of SCP12. As a common Stakeholder Collaboration and Territorial Mapping tool ECOTRANS manages the global Tourism2030 Green Travel Maps under collective access ownership to make the certification mapping and market-place monitoring immediately implementable. The users' synergies in boosting sustainable tourism will be reported annually.
In 2015, IFAD started the second phase of Value Chain Development Programme (PRODEFI). The first phase of PRODEFI greatly contributed to the expansion of the rice and dairy sectors, particularly through the promotion of rice farming and community livestock breeding. However, the processing and marketing of crops and dairy produce was still lagging behind. The second phase of the project (PRODEFI-II) will strengthen the downstream stages of production in the dairy and rice value chains.
The programme has provided significant support to the upstream stages of the milk sector by promoting improved production technologies, it has also crucially worked downstream to foster the development of the local milk marketing chain. Specifically, the project has invested over one third of its resources into improving the access of small-scale milk producers, traders and processors to local milk markets and the processing industry.
Sustainability-oriented Service Innovation: an approach to resource-conserving at tourist accommodation
This report summarises progress in deploying the sustainable hospitality solution ‘My Green Butler’ (SDG 9), and the management challenges that go into implementing responsible consumption and production (SDG12) within their tourist accommodation. Findings show once management can see the previously invisible areas of waste, they become significantly more motivated to take innovative steps to save resources that can become part of their competitive point of difference and appeal to guests.

TLMSP had the objective of reducing on-farm maize storage losses to improve the food security of poor and hungry families in Timor-Leste's upland farming zone. This was pursued by providing farmers with storage drums at a subsidised cost and training beneficiaries in their use and maintenance. The programme distributed over 41,000 steel drums to 23,000 households.A participatory and community-based approach was adopted and young agricultural graduates delivered the training.
Van de Sant Innovations designs and manfucatures comfortable sustainabe furniture, made from several waste streams. This furniture stops deforestation, reduce plastic waste and CO2 emission, creates local jobs and is 100% circular. Ocean bound plastic is used for framework. Post-consumser textile for foam and fabric sollutions. After the end of life cycle, the furniture returns in our re-manufacturing proces, to close the loop and end waste.
The UIAA Mountain Protection Award (MPA) was created in 2013. During its six years of existence, the annual UIAA Mountain Protection Award (MPA) has made a tangible difference to mountain lives, communities and the environment. It has enabled people to raise finances to build key infrastructures, conduct vital research and fulfil pending goals; it has provided an international showcase and communication platform for projects to raise awareness and exchange ideas and initiatives.
"Since the beginning of 2013, WWF Germany and Wikinger Reisen have been working together to promote sustainable tourism. Our partnership aims to enable people to experience nature and its incredible diversity while limiting the environmental impact of tourism as far as possible.

WWF Germany developed guidelines for hotels in order to supper those tourism businesses to tackle plastic pollution.
The network aims to support African local governments to reap the benefits of sustainable public procurement (SPP). Working together, the members of the network can learn from each other’s good practices in SPP and cities are able to further the implementation of SPP at higher political levels. It is also envisioned to facilitate joint procurements and increased collaboration with market parties and research institutions.
