Applying Gender Lens on Sustainability Standards and Certification Systems for International Trade

8 March 2021

Register Here

The United Nations Forum on Sustainability Standards (UNFSS) is an initiative of five United Nations agencies - Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Trade Centre (ITC), UN Environment, United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

Together with OWIT Nigeria and OWIT International, and several other key partners including the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), African Organisation for Standardisation (ARSO), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and ISEAL, this dialogue aims to:

  • raise global awareness on the issues most women entrepreneurs and exporters face with regards to sustainability standards. Even if they can see the benefits of complying to these standards, the issue they are often faced with are the lacking means of financial, capacity and institutional support
  • put forward policy recommendations at national level on ways to facilitate a better infrastructure that eases women entrepreneurs to certify their products
  • discuss differentiated impacts of standards compliance for women in international trade, and its best practices to foster gender equality and women empowerment

Everyone is welcome to join this event for free!
