Paving the way for sustainable consumption and production : the Marrakech Process Progress Report : towards a 10 year framework of programmes on sustainable consumption and production( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, sustainable consumption and production (SCP) was recognized as an overarching objective of an prerequisite to sustainable development. Ten years after the Rio Conference, world leaders signed the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) and agreed to "encourage and promote the development of a 10 Year Framework of programmes in support of regional and national initiatives to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production". The Marrakech Process was launched in 2003 in order to respond to this call. Since its establishment, the global, multi-stakeholder process has supported the implementation of SCP in all regions and has played a key role in providing inputs for the elaboration of the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production, to be considered by the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) during its 2010-2011 implementation cycle. This report presents the activities and outcomes of the Marrakech Process and provides some highlights and lessons learned. It examines the key outcomes of the Process from three main perspectives: The work of the seven Marrakech Task Forces: Cooperation with Africa, Education for Sustainable Consumption, Sustainable Buildings and Construction, Sustainable Lifestyles, Sustainable Products, Sustainable Public Procurement, Sustainable Tourism -- The activities undertaken at the regional level: in Africa, West Asia, Asia and the Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, and North America -- Actions at the national and local levels. The review includes case studies highlighting concrete projects and good practices implemented by the Marrakech Process worldwide. In reviewing all these actions it is clear that the Marrakech Process constitutes a global effort in which all stakeholders are taking action, coming together to build cooperation and support the transition towards sustainable consumption and production. It demonstrates a clear global commitment to SCP, paving the way for an up-scaled and more formal effort to accelerate the transition towards resource efficient economies and sustainable lifestyles."--Page 4 of cover

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[E]xplore[s] the global human impact of climate change and its serious destabilizing effect on international politics. The film turns the distant concept of global warming into a concrete human problem with enormous worldwide consequences ... The film features a variety of leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, including John Kerry and Newt Gingrich. Whether human-caused or a product of nature, the changing climate is already creating humanitarian disasters and will inevitably lead to worldwide political instability."--Container
