In today’s global landscape, with the climate crisis continuing to worsen, the need to balance economic growth with environmental stewardship is more crucial than ever. Green – or climate-smart – trade facilitation is playing an increasingly important role as countries strive to transition towards low-carbon and sustainable economies. This workshop will introduce the concept of green trade facilitation, and examine its developments and opportunities, including strategies, initiatives and good practices that help enable trade to be more efficient and environmentally friendly, and contribute to climate goals. Following the opening remarks and overview presentation, each thematic session is expected to feature a moderator and 3-4 speakers with a question & answer segment at the end.
The workshop is organized under the Regional Organizations Cooperation Mechanism for Trade Facilitation (ROC-TF). To learn more about ROC-TF, click here.
