The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and partners will hold this multi-stakeholder event to foster debate and developing specific policy options and novel ideas to feed into the processes of two upcoming intergovernmental Conferences: the High-level UN Ocean Conference (New York, June 2017); and the 11th World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial Conference (Buenos Aires, December 2017). The Oceans Forum on trade-related aspects of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 will address policy and regulatory options for advancing the implementation of trade in fish-related targets under SDG 14 by drawing on global, regional and cross-country experiences, sharing lessons, sensitizing development partnerships and designing more effective support measures. The Forum will be attended by Member States of UNCTAD, specialized agencies and other intergovernmental bodies. Registration for civil society organizations is open until 16 March.
