Sustainable Consumption and Production
Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) is an approach to limit the environmental degradation caused by the production and use of goods and services. SCP requires that production practices become more efficient, use fewer resources, and generate less pollution and waste. To achieve SCP, production sectors, business, governments, communities, and individuals all need to work together to meet the needs of society in an environmentally sustainable way.
The goal of the module is to help you understand the concept of SCP in the context of national conservation and development planning and management processes, such as those associated with National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There are four lessons in this module. Each lesson takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The entire module should take three hours to complete.
