The biannual BioTrade Congress brings together BioTrade partners as well as specialists and experts on various issues surrounding trade and biodiversity. The congress will explore the linkages of sustainable trade in enhancing nature’s contribution to people and contribute to ongoing processes such as the post-2020 global biodiversity framework, the SDGs and UNCTAD’s Bridgetown Covenant.

Mathieu Lamolle, International Trade Centre’s Senior Advisor, will participate in parallel session 5: BioTrade sustainability through standards and certification schemes.
