Background

The EU-funded SWITCH-Asia Regional Policy Advocacy Component implemented by UNEP has organized the Leadership Academy since 2018, aiming at strengthening technical capacity of young professionals from the 17 SWITCH-Asia countries. This results in strong perception and deeper understandings of key messages that Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) is now at the heart of environmental solutions to accelerate achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including Climate Action, Marine Litter, Air Pollution, Food Loss and Food Waste, Resource Efficiency, and so on. The SCP course is a follow-up activity that is designed to enhance knowledge and understanding on SCP and share practices of the virtuous circle of circular economy and sustainable lifestyles which are fundamental principles of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and vehicles to achieve overall SDGs particularly SDG 12, Responsible Consumption and Production. The course is accessible to all stakeholders and anyone who is interested in the topic.

Objectives

To disseminate and shape up knowledge and case studies of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), highlighting sustainable lifestyles and circular economy, and to promote uptake and advocate SCP policies of Asian countries.
