One Earth participated in the first meeting and dialogue for North America (Canada and USA) on sustainable consumption and production, held November 6 and 7, 2008, in Washington D.C.; a second follow-up meeting is anticipated in Canada. The aim of this meeting was to define a regional approach to advance sustainable consumption and production in North America that also contributes to the global Marrakech Process. The meeting provided a platform to shape North American needs and priorities for achieving SCP, to identify success stories, best practices, lessons learned and gaps. UNEP Regional Office for North America's website features a page on the meeting that includes more details and information, key documents, etc. IISD's Reporting Services features a descriptor of the meeting: http://www.iisd.ca/ymb/sdwsc/html/ymbvol156num1e.html.
