Learn about a global initiative co-led by the United Nations Environment Programme, ICLEI, and the Korean Environmental Industry & Technology Institute: the 10YFP Programme on Sustainable Public Procurement. This programme is a global collaborative platform to make the case for SPP, foster innovation and accelerate implementation at world level. Nearly 100 partner organizations from around the world cooperate through different topic-focused working groups to work towards the programme’s two main goals: 1) Building the case for SPP across the globe and 2) Supporting the implementation of SPP on the ground. UNEP’s SPP Program Officer, Farid Yaker, will be present to highlight the programme’s accomplishments such as the Global SPP Review and how to get involved.
