Africa Review Report on Sustainable Consumption and Production
Moving to more sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is at the heart of sustainable development, and international cooperation is essential to effect that transition. Recognizing this, governments at the Johannesburg Summit in 2002 called for the development of a 10-year framework of programmes (10-YFP) in support of regional and national initiatives to accelerate the shift towards SCP patterns that would promote social and economic development within the carrying capacity of ecosystems. The 10-YFP was among the cluster of issues discussed during the Eighteenth Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD-18) in 2010. CSD-18 reviewed progress and achievements, as well as obstacles and challenges to implementation of SCP. CSD-19 will serve as the basis for negotiations for the global 10-YFP on SCP.
The Marrakech Process, led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), is the global platform that brings all stakeholders together to work jointly in the promotion and implementation of SCP patterns and elaboration of this 10-YFP on SCP.
