The United Nations’ Environment Programme (UNEP) and its Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) invited ADFIAP to its 3rd International Experts Meeting on Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) held in Stockholm, Sweden on June 26-29, 2007. The event, that included the meetings of the Marrakech Process working groups, were hosted by the Government of Sweden.

The event was organized to report and to share progress on national and regional activities related to SCP as well as to advance the work of the Marrakech Process on sustainable consumption and production that was launched in Marrakech, Morocco in June 2003.

Over 300 participants from government agencies and international organizations concerned with policies to promote sustainable consumption and production as well as a select group of experts from industry, NGOs, academia, local authorities and other major groups participated in the event.

ADFIAP was represented in the meeting by its Secretary General, Octavio B. Peralta, who was earlier nominated by the organizing UN agencies to the Advisory Committee on Cooperation Dialogue. In Stockholm, Mr. Peralta co-facilitated a workshop on cooperation with development agencies with the UN Development Programme’s, Phil Dobie.
