As trade policymakers gather in Geneva in December 2021 for the WTO’s Twelfth Ministerial Conference (MC12), join us for discussions on how to ensure trade policies contribute to sustainable development! Stay on top of developments in the negotiations and bring your ideas and concerns to key stakeholders at IISD’s TRADE + SUSTAINABILITY HUB.

From December 1-3, 2021, we will be providing a virtual space for your panel sessions, as well as bringing civil society, government, business, and international organizations together physically in Geneva to discuss trade and sustainable development linkages on the sidelines of MC12.
