Assessment of Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Arab Region 2020
The Assessment of Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Arab Region 2020 draws upon the latest available data and methods to provide an updated quantitative assessment of progress on SCP in the Arab region. This assessment provides analysis of progress and constraints faced by the Arab region in achieving SCP targets and indicators. It uses a cross sectoral approach to assess 14 indicators covering SDGs 12, 3,6,7,9 and 11 on sustainable consumption and production, health, water, energy, infrastructure, and cities respectively . Given the restricted data availability in the choice of indicators, the proposed indicators still cover a wide spectrum of issues which allow an in-depth analysis on SCP and circular economy and can support the identification of relevant policy options as an ultimate objective of this assessment.
