Ten Year Framework -
Road Map towards the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD)

It is expected that the proposal of the 10-year framework of programmes (10YFP) on sustainable consumption and production (SCP) will be included in the Secretary General’s report, so the final draft of the 10YFP needs to be ready in summer of 2010

One major goal of the Marrakech Process is to present a solid proposal on the 10-year framework of programmes at CSD18/19, where it will be negotiated by governments, with participation of all Major Groups in the deliberations.

:: 2010 : The Review Year

The first year of the CSD cycle (2010) is the review year. The Secretary General’s report will focus on a review of progress in the implementation of commitments, targets and goals related to the sustainable development themes under consideration, including the 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production. This report will be prepared during summer/fall of 2009.

:: 2011 : The Policy Year

The second year of the CSD cycle (2011) is the policy year. The Secretary General’s report will focus on decisions on how to overcome constraints, obstacles and barriers to the implementation process.

Negotiations on the 10YFP will begin in February 2011 at an inter-sessional preparatory meeting and conclude in April/May at the CSD.
