The Sustainable Consumption Research Exchange (SCORE) network has been an important channel of advice to the Marrakech Process from the twenty research centers associated with that network.
For access to the complete text of research papers submitted to their meetings visit the SCORE website.
The second SCORE Conference scheduled for 10-11 March 2008 will focus on a Framework for Action on SCP; see the conference webpage for programme information, papers and presentations.
Collaboration with the academic, scientific and technical communities is an important element of the Marrakech Process.
It is essential that policy making on sustainable consumption and production be informed by the latest research findings. For this reason, academics and researchers have been key participants at all regional and international meetings under the Marrakech Process.
