7th International Society for Industrial Ecology – Asia Pacific Conference
15th Asia Pacific Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production
Cebu Island, The Philippines (23rd – 25th
February 2021) [updated on 2020-01-6]
Theme: Science-Policy Interface towards SDG 12
The integrated event of the 7th ISIE-AP7 and APRSCP15 will be a unique combination and rare opportunity for a science-policy interface in the Asia Pacific concerning sustainability. The event will showcase Asia Pacific talent in scientific knowledge and appropriate policy options for the regional
condition through interactive dialogue among scientists and government officials under one roof.
ISIE was founded in 2001 in Leiden, with “Science of Sustainability” as its core competence; while the ISIE-AP events have been organized by the active Asian members to meet the regional dynamism. The APRSCP was founded in 1997, with support from UNEP, UNIDO, ADB, USAID, EU, and more specifically the NCPCs1. The roundtable has gone through historical path of two major transformations in the Asia Pacific; (1) from cleaner production to SCP/RECP & Circular Economy; and (2) from CP project implementation to SCP policy to the science-policy interface.
The event promises to facilitate participation of scientists and national governments / LGUs to work hand-in-hand in improving the regional SDG roadmap based on scientific debate.
