Sustainable production and consumption
AMS reported putting in place policies, roadmaps, national plans, and national ecotourism plans that are aimed at developing a green economy by creating a culture of sustainability in employment, technologies, and consumption patterns across various sectors. Examples of such policies are the National Green Growth Roadmap of Cambodia and the National Roadmap for Social Forestry of Malaysia. Community Forestry policies also play a big role towards achieving sustainable forest management.
All AMS have integrated Sustainable consumption and Production (SCP) in their legislative framework and national programmes. But the natural resource base across the ASEAN region continues to erode beyond safe ecological limits, thus, require deliberate and swift efforts to balance the scales of economic progress and environmental sustainability.
