Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP)- linked Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)
Type: Brief
Year: 2023
Language: English
Country: Multi-country
Technical Advisory Brief

Unsustainable patterns of consumption and production (SCP) are root causes of the triple planetary crises of climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution. It is widely accepted that the appropriate adjustments in the production and consumption patterns can potentially avoid a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions, both directly and indirectly. Therefore, the countries can obtain multiple benefits by integrating SCP aspects within the NDC targets. This is critically important to the Asia-Pacific region as it has the steepest increase in domestic material consumption during the first two decades of the century.
