What is the 10YFP?
At the Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012, Heads of State converged around the idea that fundamental changes in our production and consumption patterns are indispensable to achieving long-term sustainable development.
Moving towards Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) patterns is a far greater task than any one organization, sector or region can hope to achieve. The realization that a global shift towards SCP would require the commitment of diverse actors across the globe spurred Heads of State at Rio+20 to adopt the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP).
The 10YFP generates collective impact through multi-stakeholder programmes and partnerships, which develop, replicate and scale up SCP policies and initiatives at all levels.
What does 10YFP do?
10YFP consists of six programmes: Sustainable Public Procurement, Consumer Information for SCP, Sustainable Tourism, Sustainable Lifestyles and Education, Sustainable Buildings and Construction, and Sustainable Food Systems.
