Trade Relations and Sustainability by NRP 73
Date: October 23, 2019
Time: 08:30 – 10:00
Location: Centre International de Conferences (CICG), Geneva Switzerland
The objectives of this workshop are to present the different approaches of the NRP 73 projects and to discuss solutions for trade relations and sustainability.
The key issues to be touched upon are:
- What are the global burdens associated with current Swiss production and consumption?
- How can governments create more sustainable trade relations complying with international obligations?
- What are the impacts of trade liberalization on sustainability and on food security?
- What’s the role of the private sector?
The interactive workshop will include short presentations of initial results of the research projects. During a world café or carousel, we will discuss three key topics and will reflect on the insights during a final panel discussion with representative from the Swiss government, researchers, politicians and company representatives.
