Tips to support national coordination and initiatives for sustainable consumption and production, as well as concrete examples of successful initiatives, developed with the active contribution of National Focal Points (Practical tools for SCP and Sharing experience case studies) 4. Information about the online Global SCP Clearinghouse (The Global SCP Clearinghouse and National Focal Points). 5.
