The SWITCH -Asia Network Facility is set up within the SWITCH -Asia Programme to maximise its impact by effective knowledge sharing and dissemination, and networking.
Without proper networking, communication and knowledge sharing across the programme and the region, project results will remain scattered. The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility works predominantly with the sustainable consumption and production (SCP) projects funded by the European Union (EU). It seeks synergies amongst SWITCH-Asia projects, creates linkages with regional SCP activities and other networks, and helps bring results to the attention of Asian policy-makers.
Within the SWITCH-Asia programme the Network Facility will distil knowledge of project practices and promote effective replication. The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility organises networking events and prepares case studies, booklets on good sustainable consumption and production (SCP) practices. It is one of the components of the SWITCH-Asia programme funded by the EU and implemented by the Wuppertal Institute and the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP).
