Kyrgyzstan National Multi-stakeholder Consultations on Sustainable Consumption and Production

The SWITCH-Asia SCP Facility supported by the European Union Delegations to Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan will organise the first National Multi-stakeholder Consultations (MSC) on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in both countries. The events will bring together multiple stakeholders, including policy makers, practitioners and civil society to discuss challenges and identify national priorities on SCP, ultimately strengthening Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan’s work towards achieving the United Nations Global Sustainable Agenda 2030 and shifting towards a green and circular economy. 

Objectives of the MSC:

  • Bring the concerned stakeholders together including ministries, business, academia, universities and other key actors at national and sub-national levels and create a productive exchange on needs and priorities;

  • Discuss national SCP needs, priorities, challenges and opportunities for action in both countries;

  • Identify support needed from the SCP Facility to address priorities;

  • Define concrete next steps on how to implement the demand that will result from this consultation in further supporting SCP delivery in both countries;

  • Establish a consultation platform between key stakeholders including the ministries, business, civil society actors, National SCP Focal points, and the EU Delegations to further mainstream and address SCP related issues.
