IISD-UNIGE Webinar Series on Trade and Sustainable Development

The International Institute for Sustainable Development and the University of Geneva's Faculty of Law have partnered together to organize a webinar series on trade and sustainable development. These webinars bring together expert speakers to explore some of the myriad issues that fall at the nexus of trade, sustainable development, and law.

These events seek to foster an open, engaged discussion on where synergies can be found, and where challenges remain in ensuring the trading system is fully supportive of the sustainability agenda. This webinar series is made possible through the support of the UK government and is part of our ongoing work on promoting transparency and supporting informed trade conversations.

Recent webinars in the series include:
