Trends in Sustainable Development: Towards Sustainable Consumption and Production
PDF File Size: 11.33 MB | Download   
The Johannesburg Plan of Implementation refers to sustainable consumption and production (SCP), along with poverty eradication and conservation of the natural resource base, as essential precondition for sustainable development. The idea of sustainable development contains within it the completion of three transitions: demographic, development, and decoupling. The demographic transition is at a mature stage and global population will level off around 9 billion later this century, and the share of urban population will expand briskly, especially in developing countries.The decoupling transition is also problematic. Already,the consumption patterns of the developed countries have imposed severe stresses on the earth’s natural resources and largely filled its natural sinks. If the development transition were to follow the same consumption and production patterns, pressures on critical ecosystems and life-support systems would become intolerable.Thus, a key challenge facing the international community is how to sustain and even accelerate the development transition while also realizing the decoupling transition. An energy transition is also crucial, combining energy access for the poor with diffusion of renewable energy.
