Acknowledgements

This Handbook is an output of UNEP’s work towards the implementation of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). This global edition is based on a pilot edition for Asia and the Pacific region that was developed under the EU funded and UNEP managed Regional Policy Support Component of the SWITCH-Asia programme. The Handbook is based on original work authored by a group of senior experts and UNEP staff and previous work that UNEP has compiled on SCP over the last ten years. While any complete reference should acknowledge hundreds of individuals that have contributed to UNEP’s work on SCP, only the core team that developed and reviewed this work is acknowledged.
