Ryu Koide (Government Analytics) Publishes Article on Policy Integration of Sustainable Consumption and Production

The following is written by Ryu Koide, a policy researcher with Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Japan who is in the Government Analytics Program at Johns Hopkins University. The full text of his publication can be accessed here

The objectives of sustainable development cannot be realized solely by implementing policies from the environmental sector or an isolated effort by Environmental Ministries. Instead, they require policy integration between broader policy sectors ranging from industry, transportation, building, and agriculture as well as coordination between line ministries. Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) - a core element of sustainable development adopted as the goal 12 of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - is not an exception.

A journal paper published by Ryu Koide in the open access journal "Resources" examines the importance of policy integration in promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) and investigates the progress of policy integration of SCP into national policies. The research provides an empirical analysis based on a questionnaire survey of more than 46 governments implemented by the secretariat of the United Nations' 10-year framework of programmes on SCP (United Nations Environment Programme). The paper suggests the necessity to promote policy integration of SCP objectives further with identifying the main clusters of integrated policy sectors and assessing the effect of national cross-cutting sustainability strategies on sectoral and organizational policy integration.
