Thus far seven Task Forces have been created

:: Voluntary initiatives led by governments

The Marrakech Task Forces are voluntary initiatives led by governments, which - in co-operation with various other partners from the North and the South - commit themselves to carrying out a set of concrete activities at a national or regional level that promote a shift to SCP patterns.

The Task Forces are supporting the implementation of SCP projects such as

  • eco-labeling in Africa;
  • national action plans on SCP;
  • developing tools and supporting capacity building in the areas of sustainable public procurement;
  • sustainable tourism projects;
  • networks on product policy to encourage more innovation in product eco-design and performance;
  • sharing best policy practices on energy efficiency in buildings; and
  • promotion of sustainable lifestyles and education.
