Advancing people’s rights in consumption and production: a radical transformation for sustainable developmentJuly 13, 2021
“There is no hope for sustainable consumption and production under the exploitative system that maintains the semi-feudal systems in the Global South” says Kurniawan Sabar, Director of the Institute for National and Democracy Studies (INDIES), an Indonesian independent research institute. “Based on the experience and practices from many countries, the best way to mobilize communities and sectors is by solid organizing. This means that we be a part of communities and sectors that we are working with towards building programs and solidarity,” Sabar expounded
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.
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.
