Advancing People-Powered Sustainable Consumption in Asia and Africa

Current health, economic and ecological crises urge us to overhaul the prevailing system, and to replace it with People-Powered Sustainable Consumption and Production (PP-SCP), which prioritises the welfare of the people and planet and strives to dismantle systemic inequalities.

Sustainability and Climate Justice beyond COVID-19

While the government ensures the adoption of sustainable consumption and production (SCP, through SDG 12) and climate action (SDG 13) to preserve our finite natural resources and combat environmental destruction, it seems to be untrue to its goals: destructive mining operations proliferate, lands are being converted for commercial use, the agricultural sector is dominated by agribusiness and agrochemical corporations, and pollution seems to be endless. These aggravate the health and life hazards brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reclaiming Health and Well-Being: SDG 3 and privatization amid the pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the scant and weak public health system of our country. At the onset of the pandemic’s onslaught, we have seen how privatized healthcare is exclusively accessible to the privileged as patients from poor sectors are deprived from proper medical attention. Added to this, the government’s pandemic response appears to have […]
