Background

SWITCH-Asia Sustainable Consumption and Production National Policy Support Component for Sri Lanka project (NPSC) funded by European Union commenced in mid-January 2015 is a 4-year project to support the Sri Lankan Government in selecting, adapting and implementing suitable economic and regulatory policy instruments to promote sustainable consumption and production, thereby enhancing the long-term sustainability of consumption and production patterns.


Overall Objective of the Scholarship Programme

It is important to develop a stock of human capital to promote SCP concepts and to undertake appropriate interventions during and beyond the project implementation period. As SCP is a cross cutting discipline, while MoMDE takes the lead, other stakeholder organizations could also play vital roles in propagating the SCP concept across the country. In order to achieve this objective, it is necessary to develop expertise and competencies of state as well as non-state sector officials who are being groomed to lead SCP activities in respective organizations through higher educational programmes.
