In March 2014, representatives from different Malaysian ministries and organisations have started the second phase of development for a new M&E system in Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). adelphi is consulting the Malaysian government in laying the system's foundations.
As part of the SWITCH-Asia Programme, adelphi has been advising the Government of Malaysia since 2012 in developing a monitoring and evaluation system for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP). This system should be used to track real progress made towards more sustainable consumption and production patterns and to improve the effectiveness of existing SCP policies. In the first phase of the project adelphi and the Malaysian Economic Planning Unit (EPU) have already compiled a comprehensive set of SCP indicators and designed a system for data collection and processing.
The aim of the second project phase is to put theory into practice. To this end, adelphi will test indicators and prepare a prototype report which will serve as the template for future SCP reports by the Government. In order to establish the basis for efficient and successful reporting, a kickoff workshop is planned to take place in March 2014. At this event, representatives from different government ministries, departments and other relevant organisations will identify best practices for data collection and reporting.
The policy support component takes place under the SWITCH-Asia Programme. This is a regional environmental programme by the European Commission that seeks to promote SCP in Asia.
