Trade and Logistics, and the Sustainable Development Goals
Palais des Nations, Geneva (Room XXVI)
Monday, 30 October 2017 (10:00 to 13:00)

This course will explore the mutual linkages between specific Sustainable Development Goals and trade logistics efficiency to ensure access to overseas markets through international transport and trade facilitation services. Emphasis will be placed on maritime transport, ports, multimodal transport, connectivity and transit to provide participants with analysis and guidance to make transport more efficient and less costly, while increasing its resilience and sustainability, enhancing trade and port efficiency and improving transit and trade facilitation. On the one hand, countries that are more advanced in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals are likely to have more capacities to provide efficient trade logistics services to their importers and exporters. On the other hand, by investing in sustainable and resilient transport and trade facilitation reforms, countries will also achieve certain Sustainable Development Goals
