Objective: The One Planet network has the mission to accelerate the shift towards Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in both developed and developing countries, as an essential strategy and requirement for Sustainable Development. It is set up to support countries in achieving SDG 12. Through doing this it is also contributing to other SDGs (see other SDG section).
-UN Inter-agency collaboration to support countries in achieving SDG 12 including: coordination on joint tools and solutions, SDG 12 indicator reporting and the joint Fund (One Planet Multi-Partner Trust Fund for SDG 12) to support countries in implementing Sustainable Development Goal 12.
Through these key actions and the aforementioned six accelerator programmes, the network supports countries through:
-Providing expertise, tools and solutions, building on existing work by governments and organisations
-Supporting the coordination of country level implementation -Mobilizing resources for implementation,
-Supporting partners who commit to taking action with technical assistance, training and capacity development that can enable prioritization and strengthened action.
-Identifying and promoting successful (high impact), new or improved practices that support SCP, including a platform for collaboration and dissemination.
-Increasing awareness on SCP by developing and showcasing compelling materials.
-Promoting the long-term benefits and impacts of SCP and monitoring progress by collecting data and measuring the shift to SCP through an established indicator and reporting framework.
Governance: The governance includes an inter-governmental Board from all five UN regional groups and the High-Level Political Forum is the official reporting body.
Follow-up mechanisms: Annual progress is reported by the network following an indicator framework (see here: www.oneplanetnetwork.org/resource/one-planet-network-indicators-success), and through an online reporting tool. Data collected is analyzed and summarized in a report to the HLPF, and made available to a wider audience through an open data visualization tool.
Financing was previously through the 10YFP Trust Fund and is now through the One Planet Multi-Partner Trust Fund administered through the Multi-Partner Trust Fund office of UNDP.
The expected impact is to increase resource efficiency and decouple economic growth from environmental degradation, creating decent jobs and contributing to poverty eradication and shared prosperity. Impacts are measured across three main areas: Resource Efficiency: material-use efficiency, waste reduction, water-use efficiency, Energy-use efficiency. Environmental Impact: GHG Emissions reduction, reduction of air, soil and water pollutants, biodiversity conservation and sustainable land-use. Human well-being: Gender, Decent work, Health. The tangible changes that the network aspires to catalyse and enable at country level are essential to the successful implementation of the strategy and require the provision of the necessary financial resources and the shared responsibility of national authorities and programme partners. Preliminary indications of the change the network aspires to catalyse are:
Increase in number of countries reporting on SDG 12
Increase in number of countries reporting on SDG 12 that declare they receive support from the One Planet network
-Increase in the use of tools for SCP produced by the One Planet network
Increase in changes in practice with high sustainability impact
Increased number of high level commitments on SDG 12
Increase in number of policies, laws and financial instruments influenced by the One Planet network (global, regional, and national)
Potential impacts of SCP quantified (actual or estimated)
SCP demonstrated as a systemic approach to address key environmental and social challenges
30% of companies adopt sustainable practices and integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle (12.6)
20% reduction in waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse (12.5)
20% of public procurement is sustainable (12.7)
30% of the share of products in biggest retailers in the country are sustainable
25% reduction in food waste and loss (12.3)
20% reduction in water use, in material use growth rate and waste in Buildings.
Increase in number policies, laws and financial instruments influenced by the One Planet network (within the country – e.g. specific sector, organisation, destination, etc) (12.1, 12.7,
Amount of public and private financial resources supporting the shift to SCP mobilized, unlocked or saved through actions supported by the One Planet Network (5 USD mobilized or unlocked for every USD invested)
