About this item

In the emerging narrative of sustainable development, the essential goal is to balance the use of resources alongside the increasing demand for goods and services. To achieve this, Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) aims at reconciling the two goals: minimise the extraction of natural resources from the environment, and limit waste and emissions over the life cycle of goods and services.Sustainable Asia: Supporting the Transition to Sustainable Consumption and Production in Asian Developing Countries is the first volume of the "Sustainable Asia" series and provides an overview and analysis of the current status of SCP in Asian developing countries. The book focuses on projects supported by the EU-funded SWITCH-Asia Programme, a regional development programme promoting the adoption of SCP practices among Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) and consumer groups in Asia since 2007.For readers looking for a comprehensive introduction to the topic of SCP together with a detailed analysis of the current developmental situation in various Asian developing countries and key sectors such as manufacturing, tourism and agriculture, this book is an invaluable tool. The book examines in detail the SCP approaches and innovative solutions demonstrated by the SWITCH-Asia supported projects in Asia and thus serves as a reference for practitioners, researchers and policymakers alike.
