The International Trade Centre's (ITC) Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) programme organizes the Trade for Sustainable Development Forum, which brings together business people, researchers, standards organizations and international trade officials to discuss trends in sustainable value chains and voluntary sustainability standards. In 2017, the event will consider 'Partnerships: Which model is yours?' with agenda items considering: why some models are more successful in achieving sustainability objectives; common elements of success when standards organizations, policy makers and private companies work well together; what we can expect from successful collaboration; and what issues should be considered when engaging in new partnerships. The 2017 edition of the T4SD Forum will be hosted in the headquarters of ITC from 25-26 September, and will feature a high-level session at the WTO Public Forum 2017 on 27 September.
