Frequently Asked Questions - The Marrakech Process

Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) has become a global priority and challenge. It requires building cooperation among different stakeholders and sectors. SCP is about increasing resource efficiency and promoting sustainable lifestyles. It offers important contributions for poverty alleviation and the transition towards low-carbon and green economies.

The Marrakech Process is a dynamic multi-stakeholder platform that supports: 1) the implementation of projects and programmes on SCP at the regional and national levels, and 2) the elaboration of a Global Framework for Action on SCP.

The publication describes this vibrant and complex Process. It defines the concept of SCP and provides brief answers and overviews of each of the activities of the Marrakech Process (international and regional meetings, Task Forces, Forums with business and civil society, etc), and highlights the outcomes and progress achieved. It also explains SCP contributions to poverty alleviation and climate change mitigation.

Through a series of examples and collection of best practices, these FAQ highlight the global efforts to build capacity, implement SCP programmes and design enabling policy frameworks on SCP.
