The 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP)
UNDESA, 2014by: Division for Sustainable Development (UNDESA)
At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), in June 2012, the world’s Heads of States adopted the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (hereafter the 10YFP). This followed their reaffirmation that “fundamental changes in the way societies produce and consume are indispensable for achieving global sustainable development” (Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, 2002).
The 10YFP is a global framework for action to enhance international cooperation and accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns in both developed and developing countries. The framework supports capacity building, and facilitates access to technical and financial assistance for developing countries for this shift. The 10YFP aims at developing, replicating and scaling up SCP and resource efficiency initiatives, at national and regional levels, decoupling environmental degradation and resource use from economic growth, and thus increasing the net contribution of economic activities to resource efficiency and productivity, poverty eradication, social development and environmental sustainability. The framework will encourage innovation and cooperation on a wider scale among all stakeholders to achieve greater collective impact for the shift to SCP patterns.
This interim progress report has the objective to share with the members of the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) and stakeholders the latest developments on implementation of the 10YFP, highlighting key outputs and developments, and communicating some of the challenges and opportunities for the years to come.
