Sustainable Consumption and Production: Entry Point for Stakeholders' Engagement in SDGs Implementation in Asia

Among 17 SDGs agreed last year, Goal 12 on Sustainable Consumption and Production can link SDGs and existing initiatives on 3Rs, energy-saving and lifestyle change from private sector, municipalities, consumers and NGOs. SCP can be an entry point for mid-term and long-term agenda of transition to a resource-efficient and low-carbon socio-economic system. Considering the expanding resource and energy use and expanding infrastructure development in Asia, it is important from now on to establish a model for such transition in Japan to facilitate low-carbon and resource-efficient urban lifestyle. In this regard, this session will hold a dialogue between researchers and leading companies in the SCP area to examine how stakeholder collaboration can facilitate promotion of low-carbon and resource-efficient lifestyle, infrastructure development and policy design.
