Sustainable Consumption and Production : Outline

In the Sustainable Consumption and Production area, research emphasis will be placed on appropriate waste treatment in cities, formation of effective recycling systems with a view of Asia as a whole, policy analysis from the perspective of sustainable production and consumption centred on improvement of resource productivity, and policy recommendations focused on lifestyle changes. Furthermore, based on the groundwork of knowledge related to material flow, resource productivity, waste management and 3R policies cultivated by IGES to date, integrated research will be initiated on sustainable consumption and production, including natural resources, water, food and energy.
