The African 10-YFP on Sustainable Consumption & Production


The Development of the African 10 Year Framework Programme (10-YFP) on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) as part of the Marrakech Process on the 10 Year Framework Programmes was facilitated by UNEP and UN-DESA in close consultation with the Secretariats of the African Ministerial Conference on Environment (AMCEN) and the Secretariat of the African Roundtable on Sustainable Consumption and Production (ARSCP). The African 10-YFP was approved in March 2005 by AMCEN after passing through the following stages:

  • First African Expert Meeting on the 10 Year Framework Programme, 19-20 May 2004, Casablanca, Morocco.
  • Second African Expert Meeting on the 10 Year Framework Programme, 17-18 February 2005, Nairobi, Kenya.
  • Technical Segment of the African Ministerial Conference on Environment (AMCEN), 19-20 February 2005, Nairobi, Kenya. 

Throughout the development of the African 10-YFP, emphasis has been given to the importance of linking sustainable consumption and production with the challenge of meeting basic needs and provision of sustainable livelihood, which are of high priority for the African region.

There are various Initiatives, projects and activities to support the implementation of the African 10-YFP.
