The Challenges of a Living List: Making Progress on a Green Goods Agreement

Negotiations on a green goods agreement, announced earlier this year in Davos, Switzerland by 14 World Trade Organization (WTO) Members, will aim to create an initial and “living list” of green goods to be revised as technology evolves. This half-day event organized by the Geneva offices of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) will bring together practitioners, experts and administrators from a variety of agreements that have faced the challenges of a “living list,” to discuss their experiences and lessons learned for consideration by the WTO. Speakers will include John Scanlon, Secretary‐General, Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), Aaron Cosbey, Associate and Senior Advisor, IISD, and Ambassador Jonathan Fried, Permanent Representative of Canada to the WTO, among others. The event takes place on the eve of the WTO Public Forum.
