The 10-year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production patterns (10YFP) is a global framework of action to enhance international cooperation to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in both developed and developing countries.
At the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in 2012, Heads of State adopted the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), a global framework for action to accelerate the shift towards 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. UNEP serves as the 10YFP Secretariat.
The important transversal role of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has been clearly affirmed with the inclusion of a standalone goal (Goal 12) on SCP among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted in September 2015 at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit. The central role of the 10YFP in achieving this shift is affirmed in a standalone target (12.1) calling for its implementation.
Interested actors from all countries can be involved in the implementation of the 10YFP activities: governments, private sector, civil society, researchers, UN agencies, financial institutions, and other major groups.
