Achieving sustainable consumption and production in Viet Nam through an SDG interlinkage perspective

Commissioned Report
Embracing the interlinkages between sustainable consumption and production (SCP) and other SDGs in the national action plan for achieving SCP is indispensable from both scientific and practical perspectives. In this paper, a systems approach is proposed for achieving SCP through the interlinkages between SCP and other SDGs in Viet Nam. The IGES SDG Interlinkages Analysis and Visualisation Tool (V3.0) is used to visualise the interlinkages among the key indicators for the evaluation of SCP progress as well as main tasks for achieving SCP. The impacts of achieving SCP in Viet Nam on other SDG targets related to basic needs satisfaction, reducing inequalities, sustained economic growth and satisfaction of other needs were assessed.
