Background

The APRSCP is an international, not-for-profit, network institution, legally registered as APRSCP Foundation in the Kingdom of Thailand. Established in 1997 with the active support of multilateral agencies such as UNIDO, UNEP, and UNESCAP, its main mission is to promote Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in the Asia-Pacific, and enhance and strengthen cooperation in the development and implementation of SCP policies and practices.

Its flagship event, the Asia Pacific Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production, has been held every 18 to 24 months since its inception to facilitate uptake of SCP research, policy and practice. So far, 15 roundtables have been organised. This year, the SWITCH-Asia SCP Facillity is a partner of the event.
