A WTO Fisheries Subsidies Deal: What it means and why it matters
This session was organized by the Pew Charitable Trusts and IISD. Panellists looked at how a successful WTO agreement on curbing subsidies for overfishing could pave the way for a stronger multilateral trade and environment agenda. The event provided expert views and a forum for discussion of what the new agreement means and why it matters for the ocean and the multilateral trading system. Panellists also considered how the agreement’s implementation will be a catalyst for sustainable trade and a sustainable future.
