Type: Reports
Year: 2023
Language: English
Country: Philippines

The Philippine Action Plan for Sustainable Consumption and Production (PAP4SCP) is the government’s commitment to driving behavioral change among Filipinos, starting with government agencies, to promote sustainable consumption  and production. Its formulation will contribute to attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and realizing our Ambisyon Natin 2040 of a Matatag, Maginhawa at Panatag na buhay for all Filipinos. 

The formulation of the Philippine Action Plan for Sustainable Consumption and Production (PAP4SCP) was spearheaded by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) along with various government agencies, business sector, academe, and civil society, with assistance from the Asian  Development Bank (ADB). It is a product of research and consultations with relevant stakeholders to understand how goods and services are produced and consumed, which can impact the environment  and the economy. The intent is to identify concrete interventions to address these issues and influence behavior towards accelerating sustainable consumption and production (SCP) implementation in  the country. Using a participatory and consultative process to ensure a whole-of-society approach, the initiative included: (a) scoping of the current SCP implementation and existing enabling policies of the government; (b) assessment of circular economy (CE) in the Philippine context; (c) mapping of interlinkages with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12 or SCP; and (d) development of the SCP strategic framework and action plan.
