SCP Action Plan for the Mediterranean (consultation paper) details the main policy milestones for the SCP approach at the global and Mediterranean level. It set the framework of action for the Mediterranean context, detailing the major environmental issues, key SCP challenges for the region and suggesting key economic sectors within which SCP actions should be prioritized to ensure greats impacts.
SWITCH-Med has developed a new publication titled ¨ Toolkit for SCP policy-makers in the Mediterranean¨ aiming at mainstreaming Sustainable Consumption and Production into four key areas for sustainable development in the region: food and agriculture, goods manufacturing, tourism, and housing and construction.
This SCP toolkit is mainly addressed to policy makers and representatives of local, regional and national administrations in Mediterranean countries. Other interested stakeholders who want to learn more about an SCP approach and examples of its implementation in the region will certainly benefit from this new publication. The SCP toolkit provides a set of effective tools and instruments, case studies and lessons learned which can help to build national SCP frameworks and further integrate SCP into national and sectorial policies.
The Toolkit, is divided into the following chapters:
Chapter 1: Understanding sustainable consumption and production
Chapter 2: Policy framework for SCP.
Chapter 3: Mainstreaming SCP in key economic sectors of the Mediterranean Region.
