The Conference will include three seminars. On Tuesday 17, the objective is to explore the contribution of international trade towards the achievement of gender equality through trade policies and the promotion of women entrepreneurs (links between SDG 5, 8 and 17). On Wednesday 18, it is to analyze gender gaps in Global Value Chains (GVC), identify frameworks, new data and trends; and present government initiatives to promote gender equality in GVCs. On Thursday 19, the TAF2+ Gender, Social Inclusion and Trade (GST) Grant, funded by FCDO UK, will be presenting their technical studies on gender and trade-related issues to facilitate knowledge-sharing and networking among stakeholders in the Global South.
