From: SCP/RAC / SWITCH-Med
We invite you to raise your voice in shaping the Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Action Plan for the Mediterranean that is currently being developed with the support of the SWITCH-Med Initiative. This Action Plan, requested by the Mediterranean Countries, will be submitted for endorsement by the 22 Contracting Parties of the Barcelona Convention for the Protection of the Mediterranean Sea Against Pollution in a Conference to be held in Athens at the end of 2015 and bringing together Ministers from all those countries.
This Action Plan will be submitted for approval of national government representatives but its implementation will certainly require the active involvement of business intermediaries, organizations supporting entrepreneurs and small businesses, civil society organisations, research institutions, educational bodies, local governments, inter-governmental organisations, development agencies or similar.
The food and agriculture, tourism, goods manufacturing and housing and construction sectors have been identified as key economic sectors for the Sustainable Development of the Mediterranean and will therefore form the 4 main axis of the SCP Action Plan. Within the online consultation platform (opened until the end of the month) you will be invited to suggest measures related to the improvement of the consumption and production patterns of those 4 sectors (you will be able to choose the sectors of your interest).
