The 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP), adopted at Rio+20 in June 2012, 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. The framework will support capacity building, and facilitate access to technical and financial assistance for developing countries for this shift. The 10YFP will develop, replicate and scale up SCP and resource efficiency (RE) initiatives, at national and regional levels, decoupling environmental degradation from economic growth as well as increasing the net contribution of economic activities to poverty eradication and social development. The 10YFP will encourage innovation and cooperation among all stakeholders.
The 10YFP Trust Fund aims to:
1) provide general support to the 10YFP; and
2) support specific programmes and initiatives, responding to the national and regional priorities of developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
