Malaysia: a showcase for SCP policy making

"In the period February 2012 to January 2016 the project Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Policy Support Malaysia (SCP Malaysia) was implemented with funding by the European Union (EU) under the national policy component of the SWITCH-Asia Programme. The project had an outstanding performance and delivered excellent results; it has elevated SCP from a niche to a mainstream paradigm for the future development of Malaysia towards an advanced, inclusive and sustainable nation. The concept of SCP was prominently integrated in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan 2016-2020 (Eleventh Plan) as the key mechanism to pursue green growth, the game changer towards productivity, resource efficiency and natural protection. A long-term plan in the form of a National SCP Blueprint 2016-2030 was drafted and expands the planning horizon in line with the international agenda including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 10 Year Framework of Programmes (10YFP) on SCP."*

GFA Consulting Group is the lead company of the international consultant teams of SWITCH-Asia Policy Support country components in Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The Malaysian project’s overall objective is to support the government in selecting, adapting, and implementing suitable economic and regulatory policy instruments to promote SCP in order  to enhance the long-term sustainability of Malaysian consumption and production patterns.
