This dialogue will provide policy makers and other stakeholders from the East Africa Community region an opportunity to explore how global trade rules and national policies affecting agricultural markets could best promote food security and support rural development, in the run-up to the WTO's tenth Ministerial Conference in Nairobi and beyond.

With WTO members currently negotiating a work programme on the remaining Doha issues ahead of a July 2015 deadline, this dialogue will therefore constitute a unique opportunity for EAC Geneva-based negotiators and national and regional constituencies to review priorities and negotiating strategies in advance of the upcoming ministerial conference.

This informal policy dialogue sought to facilitate an exchange of views between different relevant actors on the relationship between agricultural trade policy and the achievement of sustainable development goals, taking into consideration the framework of rules and shared objectives that governments have agreed at the international level. As such, it sought to contribute to a broader process that ICTSD has initiated, focusing especially on the role of farm trade policy in countries that play a structural role within the global agricultural trading system, and which to date has included analysis and dialogue with policy-makers and different national constituencies in the US, EU, China, India, Russia and Brazil. Participants at the meeting exchanged analysis and opinions on how different policy options could affect food security, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability, taking into consideration current and projected trends in global markets, new developments in the regulatory frameworks governing markets for food and agriculture, and the anticipated impact of climate change.
