Sustainable Consumption Guide for Policymakers: Debunking Myths and Outlining Solutions (Asia Edition)

This guide has been used by the ECOLEBAN Project as a tool for approaching different Bangladeshi National Authorities.

This Resource Pack has been prepared for public officials and other stakeholders who would like to develop policy based solutions for sustainable consumption (SC). It demonstrates the practical meaning of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) as a policy integration approach, and provides tools to support design and implementation of policies and activities that respond to the context of the Asia-Pacific region. This is done by identifying and discussing some common myths that are obstacles to more effective SC actions and then by recommending potential solutions, mainly from an Asian perspective but also informed by practices in otherregions.
