Roadmap for sustainable consumption and production in Nordic small communities


Publish date
The Nordic countries rank high in reports on the progress towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, SDG12 on sustainable consumption and production is still a major challenge for the region. Small Nordic communities face the same tasks as big cities regarding this, but they do not have the same capacity to develop strategies and may also need different solutions. To address this, the Icelandic presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers initiated a project to support small communities in their implementation of SDG12. This report contains ideas and examples from a workshop in late 2019 with representatives from municipalities in Åland Islands, Faroe Islands, Greenland and Iceland. It also contains hints from other sources and gives a short historical overview of the concepts in question, with a special emphasis on the challenges facing small Nordic communities.
