ISAP2015 Parallel Session

Facilitating Transition to SCP in Asia and the Pacific:
Priorities and Opportunities

To respond to the rapid urbanisation and economic development of Asia and the Pacific region, achieving resource-efficient developmental pattern and sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is becoming an important agenda for the region. SCP is currently being discussed as an important target of the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Whilst the EU takes the lead on SCP policy research, Asia and the Pacific has diverse economies, so visions for sustainability, such as SDGs, need to provide more concrete pathways for the region to follow. SCP policy research is expected to contribute to concrete policy formation and implementation to achieve such visions towards sustainability. This session will discuss opportunities and challenges for policy research aiming to contribute to establishing a SCP pattern in the Asia-Pacific region.
