Sustainable Consumption & Production Branch Indicators for Developing Countries – A Guidance Framewok

This document has been developed to provide guidance to policymakers in developing countries on the development of indicators that measure progress towards more sustainable patterns of consumption and production (SCP), a critical means for achieving sustainable development.

The document proposes a structured framework for understanding SCP and for developing indicators, crucial for monitoring and evaluating progress. This framework is then tested against existing relevant indicators that are being used in twenty developing countries. Instead of being prescriptive, this document aims to provide a thinking framework to guide the process of developing indicators and formulates pertinent questions that could help to focus the discussion.

This document complements UNEP’s recently published publication ‘Planning for change. Guidelines for National Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production.

This article is a quotation from the web-page United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) by Majbritt Thomsen, administrator on ‘Views On Tourism’.
