WEBINAR: “SDG 12.1 Reporting for SWITCH-Asia Countries – Connecting the dots between actions and reporting”

VIEW WEBINAR

The EU funded SWITCH-Asia programme has been promoting sustainable and inclusive growth as well as contributing to the economic prosperity; poverty reduction; and the transition towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient and circular economy in Asia. Since it was launched in 2007, it has achieved more than a decade of progress on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in 24 countries in the region.
Properly reporting that progress is important in order to follow up on strong commitments and policies contributing to SCP as well as to encourage cooperation on SCP and to highlight the progress achieved. Connecting the dots between actions and reporting is therefore the next big step towards a region with sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12, is the SDG focus on SCP. The first target under SDG 12 (SDG 12.1) is reporting on the national implementation of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes (10YFP), established at Rio+20 in 2012. This target is a very comprehensive target and covers different national SCP policies and instruments. 
One Planet Network, a multi-stakeholder partnership for sustainable development formed to implement the commitment of the 10 YFP, has opened a process of reporting which represents a perfect opportunity for countries benefited from SWITCH-Asia activities to report on SDG 12.1. To facilitate that process, One Planet has developed an online reporting platform, which all 10YFP NFPs will be using to submit their country’s official report on SDG12.1.
 

Objectives


This webinar is aimed at supporting countries to report on SDG 12.1 by:

  • Understanding the important link between SWITCH-Asia’s achievements in the region and the use of the reporting platform that has been developed by the 10YFP Secretariat to report SCP national achievements.

  • Explaining what to report under SDG 12.1.1 and how to give visibility to your country’s achievements.
  • Building capacity on how to collect data and information, and how to use the dedicated reporting platform.
  • Bringing 10YFP National Focal Points and SWITCH-Asia National Focal Points to work together on integrating the relevant information into the offi­cial report on SDG 12.1.

 

Target Participants


This webinar is intended for:
10YFP National Focal Points
10YFP NFP are the o­cial data providers for SDG 12.1 and it is a key responsibility for them to report, on behalf of their country, to the 10YFP Secretariat that is in charge of collecting and channeling national reporting data to the relevant UN entities as well as to the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
SWITCH-Asia National Focal Points
Switch-Asia NFP are the offi­cial focal point for communication of the SWITCH-Asia programme. They are expected to ensure the inter-ministerial consultation and synergies with other national ministries and provincial/local governments involved in SCP policies and initiatives in the country. Thus, they are key to support 10YFP NFP on integrating the relevant information into the offi­cial report on SDG 12.1 to be submitted by the 10YFP NFP.
