IISD-UNIGE Webinar Series on Trade and Sustainable Development

This webinar series brings together expert speakers to explore the wide range of issues at play at the nexus of trade, sustainable development, and law. The events seek to foster open discussion on synergies and challenges related to ensuring the trading system is fully supportive of the sustainability agenda. 

Organized by IISD and the University of Geneva's Faculty of Law, with support from the UK government, the series is part of our ongoing work on promoting transparency and supporting informed trade conversations.
