Beyond 2016: Optimising the EGA’s Potential to Support Global Value Chains in Cleantech
After almost two and a half years of negotiations, there are indications that an EGA will be reached by the end of 2016. This endeavor comes shortly after international landmark agreements were reached last year on sustainable development goals (SDGs) and climate change, which have further highlighted the need for all policy areas to contribute to a more sustainable future.
This event will shed light on some of the barriers and drivers beyond tariffs, based on interventions from industry representatives and drawing on recent research. The objective is to inform the EGA negotiations as these run to a close and to draw the attention of negotiators to possible future steps for the EGA.
