WTO Public Forum 2023

September 12
 – September 15

The 2023 Public Forum will examine how trade can contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. The Forum will explore how trade can facilitate access to environmental goods, services and technologies, help achieving the Paris Agreement’s Nationally Determined Contributions, and maintain the ambition to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.

The Forum has three subthemes:

  • The role of the services sector in sustainable trade
  • Inclusive policies for the advancement of green trade
  • Digitalisation as a tool for the greening of supply chains
