The third edition of the Trade for Sustainable Development Forum (T4SD Forum) will be held on 28-30 September 2016, in Geneva, Switzerland. The Forum is organised by the International Trade Centre, and will take place in conjunction with the WTO Public Forum.
The T4SD Forum is a global event focusing on how voluntary sustainability standards can support sustainable value chains. This year's edition will feature discussions on modalities for bridging the gap between debates on sustainability standards, supply chains, and international trade as steps towards achieving the United Nations sustainable development goals.
Other issues included in the Forum's programme include: the role of big data in sustainable value chains; sustainable consumption and production; and online tools and private sector supply chain solutions in the area of trade for sustainable development.
