The International Institute for Sustainable Development and the University of Geneva's Faculty of Law are excited to announce the second webinar in their new, joint series on trade and sustainability issues.
Held on September 23, 2020, at 3 PM CEST / 9 AM EDT, the webinar was devoted to trade, biodiversity, wildlife, and natural resources, taking a technical view of the different agreements that operate in this space, while linking these issues to the wider context of the COVID-19 crisis and public health. The speakers took a deep dive into the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), other multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs), and the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Agreements.
The webinar featured Sofie H. Flensborg, Legal Adviser at the CITES Secretariat, and Gabrielle Marceau, Professor at the University of Geneva, as speakers. Soledad Leal Campos, Senior Policy Advisor at the International Institute for Sustainable Development, served as moderator.
