    The International Trade Centre’s (ITC) Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) Forum 2021, one of the leading global events on sustainable value chains, will take place on September 27-28 this year, in conjunction with the WTO Public Forum 2021.

    Under the theme “Sustainable Trade: the Heart of the Post-COVID Global Economy”, the Forum will explore the status of the sustainability agenda in the context of the Post-COVID world, and the role of sustainability standards in building forward better.

    This hybrid event will convene a wide range of stakeholders from the trade and development community, including small business owners, high-level government officials, policy makers and inspiring changemakers. 

     Objectives of the Forum:

    • Analyse the patterns from the rise of sustainability standards pre-COVID

    • Discuss the impact of the COVID crisis on the governance of global value chains, standards and sustainability at large

    • Identify key aspects of the role of global value chains, standards and sustainability in “building forward better” post-COVID, with a focus on ensuring producers get a fairer share of the pie

    • Help governments, financial institutions, small businesses, buyers & retailers make informed decisions on sustainability and trade related issues post-COVID

    • Look into the crystal ball and explore the future of standards
