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.  For further information on the 10YFP as a whole, please click on this link.

This project is under the Sustainable Lifestyles and Education (SLE) programme, one of the programmes of the 10YFP.   It aims to foster the uptake of sustainable lifestyles as the common norm, with the objective of ensuring their positive contribution to addressing global challenges, such as resource efficiency and biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and adaptation, poverty eradication and social well-being. This will be done through multidisciplinary research and multi-stakeholder cooperation, through the promotion of participative and bottom-up approaches, innovative policies, economic instruments and technologies, awareness-raising, as well as through all forms of education.

The SLE programme is co-led by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan and the Government of Sweden represented by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).  A Multi-stakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) oversees the programme’s coordination and implementation.  Further details on the programme can be found at this link.
