:: GOAL ::
to provide concrete support to the activities and programmes of the African 10-Year Framework Programme on Sustainable Consumption and Production.
Africa is the first region to have developed and launched its own 10-Year Framework of Programmes (10YFP) on sustainable consumption and production. The Task Force on Cooperation with Africa encourages and supports African countries to implement the African 10YFP through:
- Integration of SCP in national plans and programmes
- Support that enables African Countries to 'leapfrog' towards SCP patterns.
The Task Force is developing projects for the region focusing in three areas:
- A study of leapfrogging possibilities for SCP in Africa (English - PDF 750KB)
- Development of an African eco-labelling scheme (Brochure - PDF 510KB)
- Development and implementation of SCP action plans at the national level
- A collection of Best Practices on SCP in Africa (English - PDF 2MB) from projects implemented by development agencies.
