ABC OF SCP Clarifying Concepts On Sustainable...

This publication “ABC of SCP” aims to clarify the main terms and concepts related to sustainable consumption and production, and other terms associated with sustainable development, and the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD). The main objective is to facilitate dialogue and cooperation on SCP between all stakeholders. This “ABC of SCP” does not pretend to present globally agreed definitions, but rather in most cases offers working definitions that may continue to evolve. SCP is one of the main focus areas of the 18th and 19th sessions of the CSD, during which a proposal for a 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production will be developed and considered. SCP is also permanently on the agenda of the CSD, as a cross-cutting issue. We hope that the ABC of SCP can facilitate the CSD discussions and preparation of the “Rio +20” conference as well as your own work.
