This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the topic of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP), together with a detailed analysis of the current developmental situation in various developing countries in Asia and key sectors such as manufacturing, tourism, renewable energy and agriculture, this book is an invaluable tool.
Supported by case-studies from projects funded by the European Union through the SWITCH-Asia Programme, “Sustainable Asia” examines in detail specific SCP approaches and innovative solutions that allow to reconcile the three goals of:
- Minimising the extraction of natural resources from the environment,
- Limiting waste and emissions over the life cycle of goods and services, and
- Improving human development and wellbeing.
As one of the most comprehensive books to date on SCP in Asia, “Sustainable Asia” serves as a valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and policymakers interested about the application of this Sustainable Development Goal in Asia.
