The Policy Support Component
Joint Policy actions require close cooperation with national Asian Governments. To link the efforts of the projects to the policy level, EuropeAid developed the Policy Support Component (PSC). The overall objective of the SWITCH-Asia policy support component (PSC) is to strengthen the implementation of national and sub-regional policies on SCP in selected countries in Asia. The PSC consists of two instruments designed to address policy reinforcement for SCP: one regional programme, and four national projects.
The REGIONAL approach
The regional part of the policy component will target all countreis that are elegible for the SWITCH-Countries. The SWITCH-PSC implemented by UNEP,nbsp; will deal with policy-making approaches such as establishing standards, developing guidelines and building capacity with policy-makers. link 388Find out more./link

The objective of the four countrynbsp;programmes is to supportnbsp;the formulation of their own SCP policies and strategies and the development of National SCP Action Plans. Find our more soon.
