Type: Report
Year: 2019
Country: Philippines
A Desk Review of Trends and Issues

This report provides the background material in framing a sustainable consumption and production (SCP) blueprint for the Philippines, in accordance and compliance with the objectives and spirit of SDG 12. The ultimate objective of this report is to serve as a basis for the formulation of the National SCP Framework and Action Plan to lead the policy direction of the Philippines toward long-term economic growth and development that are sustainable not only terms of securing human welfare, but also in terms of preserving the quality and integrity of the natural environment. In its barest form, SCP is aligned with the idea of promoting natural resource use and the utilization of the environment in the pursuit of increasing human welfare, with the least amount of residuals and minimal impact on the quality and long-term ability of the environment to function and supply environmental services.
