Related CornerPages: policy
Algeria has embarked on the path of sustainable development since the early 2000s, through a battery of laws and regulations, as well as strategic measures such as the National Action Plan for the Environment and The Sustainable Development "PNAEDD", and the programs of energy transition and development of renewable energies.
In order to contribute to a sustainable world, a National Plan of Action on Consumption and Sustainable Production Modes(NAP-SCPM) was developed and adopted within the framework of a participatory and inclusive approach of all the stakeholders. These Sustainable Production Consumption Modes (MCPDs) are, by definition, a cross-cutting issue affecting all sectors. It was drawn up following an assessment of the situation of the MCPDs in Algeria, which concerned all sectors related to consumption and sustainable production.
