The 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), adopted at Rio+20 by the world’s Heads of State, is a global framework for action to accelerate the shift towards Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in both developed and developing countries. The 10YFP generates collective impact through multi-stakeholder programmes and partnerships, which develop, replicate and scale up SCP policies and initiatives at all levels. The 10YFP also fosters knowledge and experience sharing, and facilitates access to technical and financial resources for developing countries. At the heart of the Framework, six thematic and sectoral programmes serve as ‘umbrellas’ bringing together ideas, expertise, and resources to deliver SCP on an operational, concrete, and increasing scale.
The 10YFP programmes now gathers more than 350 actors - governments, UN entities, NGOs, business sector and others - from all over the world. Cooperation mechanisms and roadmaps for SCP and 10YFP implementation have been established in all regions, and more than 120 countries have nominated a 10YFP National Focal Point. The implementation of the 10YFP is now recognized as the first target to be met under goal 12 of the adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. UNEP is serving as the Secretariat of the 10YFP.
