The Sustainable Consumption and Production Project
The Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) project is a three-year project funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as part of their International Climate Initiative (IKI) to establish low carbon consumption and production.
Through an ambitious regional response to climate change under WWF Germany, the project aims to support the project partner countries’ (Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines: SCP-TIP) implementation and integration of SCP principles in politics, private businesses and civil society as a means for living up to their national climate strategies.
Aligned with the United Nations’ 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production patterns (10YFP), the project provides tailored assistance to varying country-specific thematic priorities in the three piloted countries. Activities in Thailand focus on the agricultural and forestry sector in spurring mitigation strategies, with specific focus on the supply chain of maize and food production. Indonesia similarly looks towards the agricultural sector, but with emphasis on palm-oil production. In the Philippines, the project emphasizes on harnessing low emission strategies on the tourism sector within the food service industry.
What We Do
Given that the agricultural sector, production and consumption of food is among the major contributors to global warming and impacts on the ecosystem, therefore it can potentially mitigate GHG emissions through the promotion and integration of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) principle into the government policies, business and consumer practices. Consumer preference and demands have direct influence on business and government decision, leading to more sustainable products innovations and policies.
The project goal is to ensure that the SCP principles will be integrated and embedded in policies or strategies of the government and business sector, and consumer behavior in order to achieve GHG emission reductions and increasing sustainable development in the agricultural and forestry sectors.
Our project’s reinvestment in the agricultural and forestry sector alongside national governments and relevant key stakeholders will take the lead in forging a green path towards the prioritization and governance of a healthy ecosystem.
