(Part 1) Meeting of the 10-year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP)
14 May 2015 -  In a world in which human population is projected to be 9.5 billion by 2050, and in which about 1.2 billion people currently live in extreme poverty and deprivation, promoting sustainable consumption and production (SCP) has become vital. At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, Heads of States adopted the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), reaffirming that SCP is one of the overarching objectives of, and essential requirements for, sustainable development.
The 10YFP is a global framework for action to enhance international cooperation and advance the implementation of SCP in all countries and regions. It generates collective impact through multi-stakeholder programmes and partnerships, which develop and scale up SCP policies and initiatives at all levels, fostering knowledge and experience sharing, and facilitating access to technical and financial resources for developing countries.
