Paving the Way to the Future We Want in Asia and the Pacific
The Asia Pacific Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (APRSCP) is an Asia-focused international, nongovernmental, non-profit, network institution that promotes sustainable consumption and production in the Asia-Pacific. The APRSCP is a multi-stakeholder dialogue that aims to enhance and strengthen regional cooperation in the development and implementation of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) strategies, and to promote best practices, programs, local initiatives, and lessons learned on SCP related projects in Asia and the Pacific region.
Around 300 representatives from Asia Pacific countries representing governments, private sector, civil society groups, and academia attended the 11th APRSCP held last 19 - 20 May 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand. The 11th APRSCP provided key recommendations to contribute to the implementation of the 10 Year Framework of Programmes (10YFP) on SCP adopted at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Brazil (Rio+20). The 10YFP implementation is extremely valuable for Asia Pacific as a platform for stakeholders to respond to the global challenge of decoupling environmental degradation from economic growth.Press to read
