The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility

Facilitating the Switch to Large Scale Implementation of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in Asia

The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility provides information on the EU-funded SWITCH-Asia Programme, its grant projects, sustainable consumption and consumption (SCP). SWITCH-Asia is the largest Programme funded by the European Union (EU) to promote sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in Asia: since 2007 it has been supporting more than 90 demonstration projects and policy support actions across 18 Asian countries, with an overall funding of more than 300 million EUR for 2007-2020.


Distill knowledge

Within the SWITCH-Asia Programme the Network Facility distills knowledge of project practices to facilitate exchange of information and promote effective replication and up-scaling. The Network Facility acts as a platform for SWITCH-Asia projects to best maximize their results and communicate their achievements.



The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility organises networking events for the SWITCH-Asia grant projects to help them share their experiences and facilitate fruitful exchanges of lessons learned, success stories and best practices. The Network Facility promotes  synergies among the SWITCH-Asia Programme components to increase their impact and support long-term sustainability of respective actions.


Promote SCP

The SWITCH-Asia Network Facility contributes to a wider dissemination of information material on SCP by publishing studies and reports, strengthening networks and synergies among SCP practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and experts.  For more information see Publications.
