This Policy Brief was first published in https://t20ind.org


The G20 comprises both developed and developing countries who are all expected to adhere to sustainable consumption and production (SCP). In practice, however, the adoption and implementation of SCP in G20 is varied, depending on factors such as availability of funding, technology, and natural resources. G20 countries have been striving to achieve the goal of SCP as per the capacity and capability of each member, but the imperative is greater cooperation and coordination. Developed countries need to ensure that appropriate funding and technological wherewithal are made available to developing countries within the G20 to achieve the goal of SCP.
