Pakistan National Action Plan on SDG 12 Sustainable Consumption and Production
Type: Reports
Year: 2017
Language: English
Country: Pakistan
The National Action Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production (NAP-SCP) is an outcome of extensive deliberations and inputs from National Roundtable and Provincial multi stakeholder consultative workshops to pave the way for mainstreaming SCP related policies as tools to achieve sustainable development in Pakistan.

The NAP-SCP provides conceptual objectives and frameworks complemented by a set of suggested policy enablers and actions that could translate SCP into projects on the ground. A paradigm shift is required to provide incentives from low value to high value products and internalization of environmental costs into pricing mechanisms with increased resource use efficiency in the value chain. There is a need to recognize to upgrade human resources, promote environment conservation and management, adopting and implementing integrated policies and plans towards inclusion, resource efficiency, mitigation and adaptation to climate change and resilience to natural disasters.
