The future of sustainable agriculture and trade: Directions, policies and investment priorities

The IGTC participated in an international panel at the 2018 Public Forum of the World Trade Organization (WTO), focussing on sustainable trade and agriculture. 

Katy Lee of the IGTC Secretariat was joined on the panel by Carmel Cahill, Deputy Director at the Directorate for Trade and Agriculture of the OECD, and George Rapsomanikis, Senior Economist at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.

Key themes included the provision of global food security and economic development in an ever-more complex system of actors and markets, as well as the rise of global value chains, new technologies and changing environmental and climate conditions.
