03.04.2013

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as the Secretariat of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP), is pleased to pre-launch the online Global SCP Clearinghouse, a unique one-stop hub dedicated to advancing Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) worldwide.

The Global SCP Clearinghouse is a harmonized and dynamic information and knowledge platform that will facilitate and trigger more innovation and cooperation towards SCP implementation. The Global SCP Clearinghouse is meant to join forces and to offer all stakeholders tools to:

  • Browse regional and thematic communities dedicated to key SCP related areas or sectors, such as sustainable food systems, sustainable tourism, lifestyles, education and youth or sustainable public procurement;
  • Share and find information and initiatives on SCP, with a worldwide SCP database, news and events;
  • Build networks and identify partners with an interactive marketplace for SCP cooperation, working groups and forums;
  • Strengthen capacities with the experts / resource persons directory, a dedicated E-library and other tools included in MySCP, the members’ personal space on the platform;
  • The Global SCP Clearinghouse will also serve as the information platform of the 10YFP.
