The SWITCH-Asia Programme

The SWITCH-Asia programme seeks to enhance the uptake of SCP by working simultaneously on the production and consumption sides, employing a multi-stakeholder approach with strong and intensive working relationships with SMEs, building upon existing structures and networks, and by scaling up results achieved in earlier projects. Projects will have to actively disseminate their results and facilitate exchange of good practices, and will be supported in this task by the SWITCH-Asia Programme Network Facility.

SWITCH-Asia Programme Network Facility

SWITCH-Asia Network Facility is set up within the SWITCH-Asia Programme to maximise its impact by effective knowledge sharing and dissemination, and networking. It will further raise the whole profile of sustainable consumption and production at a very practical level. Without proper networking and communication across the programme and the region, project results will remain scattered. The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility works predominantly with the sustainable consumption and production (SCP) projects funded by the European Union (EU) – and therefore with their partners in both the EU and Asia. It seeks synergies amongst SWITCH-Asia projects, creates linkages with regional SCP activities and other networks, and helps bring results to the attention of Asian policy-makers. It is one component of the SWITCH-Asia programme funded by the EU and implemented by the Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP).
