US and EU Policy Options for Trade in Agricultural Commodities: Building on the Expertise of the Forest Sector

24 September 2013 00:00 to 25 September 2013 00:00

Washington DC, United States



Chatham House and the Meridian Institute will host a workshop to discuss EU and US policy options for regulating the trade in those agricultural commodities that have a significant impact globally upon deforestation.

The purpose of the workshop is to consider the practical and political feasibility of applying trade and other demand-side measures to agricultural commodities, building in particular on the experiences of tackling the trade in illegal timber as well as measures from the biofuels sector.

Experts from US and EU government agencies, NGOs and research institutes will come together to identify avenues for future action in improving supply chain control and excluding ‘undesirable’ products from global markets.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
