A Key Solution to Climate Change: Sustainable Consumption and Production, Making the Link. A Solution (Part2)
Type: Booklets
Language: English
This booklet has been published by the EU funding programme SWITCH-Asia: Promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production. It is aimed at European and Asian businesses, organisations involved in developing sustainability solutions, policy-makers, and project developers wanting to help reduce the climate change impact of business in as broad a way as possible. It should be particularly useful to those interested in obtaining grant funds from the SWITCH-Asia programme, and in sharing the benefits of the network of SWITCH-Asia projects. The booklet has two sides – side one deals with the ‘challenges’ in understanding the causal relationship between economic activities and cli- mate change, and the flip side highlights some practical ‘solutions’ that can be funded, at least in part, by the programme.

Its objectives are:

  • to present a picture of how business and consumers are contributing to climate change, with particular reference to the situation in Asia;

  • to outline the concepts of the Sustainable Consumption and Production approach;

  • to present sustainable consumption and production technologies and approaches that can be used for climate change mitigation and adaptation;

  • to provide ideas for policy-makers and project developers seeking funding under the SWITCH-Asia programme;

  • to show how SCP can support the EU climate change position and goals (for example at the Copenhagen COP15 in December 2009).
