June 4, 2021 8:00 am - 10:00 am EST


As part of its activities to support WTO negotiations towards a meaningful agreement to discipline harmful fisheries subsidies, the International Institute for Sustainable Development organized an online session for WTO negotiators to discuss the current state of play in this negotiating process. The webinar provided participants with a clear overview of the Chair’s latest draft consolidated text, highlighting the key decisions in front of WTO Members with respect to the different disciplines, and offered a range of different perspectives on the implications of the proposed rules from a sustainable development perspective.
