The report provides detailed information and a review of SCP initiatives in key production-consumption areas u0097 industry, food, buildings, transport, and waste. The goal of the report is to identify opportunities for and barriers to more sustainable consumption and production, and to highlight relevant experience which could be replicated throughout the region. The following countries are covered: SEE: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia; and EECCA: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. The analysis is illustrated by examples of implementation of SCP initiatives at local level drawing on 18 city studies carried out for this report. Cities have acted as potential catalysts for change as shown by a large number of local sustainability initiatives. Many SEE and EECCA countries face similar problems and there is large potential to share knowledge and experiences and work towards a common path to sustainability. This report was jointly prepared by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the European Environment Agency (EEA) for the Sixth Ministerial Conference 'Environment for Europe' held in Belgrade in October 2007.
