Sustainable Consumption and Production Action Plan for the Mediterranean calls for contributions

27 October 2014

A consultation platform that aims to make consumption and production in the Mediterranean region more sustainable is seeking ideas and suggestions. All input will feed into the newly developed Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Action Plan, which charts a path to a “prosperous Mediterranean region” by 2030 with “socially inclusive economies based on sustainable consumption and production patterns”. Developed with the support of the SWITCH-Med project, the plan will also contribute to cleaner and healthier ecosystems.

A wide-range of stakeholders are encouraged to provide input, including business intermediaries, organisations supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses, civil society organisations, research institutions, educational bodies, local governments, and development agencies.

Food and agriculture, tourism, goods manufacturing, and housing and construction have been identified as key economic sectors for the sustainable development of the Mediterranean and will form the four main axis of the SCP action plan. A suggested first list of measures for each sector has been compiled and is available in the action plan background document. Contributors are asked to read the outline before participating in the online consultation process.The platform is open until 29 October and can be accessed via the SWITCH-Med Consultation Phase website.
