Accelerating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and Paris Agreement commitments requires global dialogue, deeper public-private cooperation and wider application of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies. Building on the momentum of last year’s inaugural summit, the Forum will once again bring multiple voices to the world stage for discussions on sustainable development and to seek solutions to climate change. The Sustainable Development Impact Summit 2018 aims to shape an agenda for action and serve as a platform to harness cutting-edge scientific, technological and digital innovations.

Ricardo Meléndez-Ortiz, Chief Executive of ICTSD, is a participant at the session on Harnessing Global Value Chains for Sustainable Development.

This fourth meeting of the Gender Research Group will review and gain perspectives on key trade policy lessons stemming from a corpus of analyses related to gender & value chains as developed by ICTSD in the recent years. 
 
The substantive inputs, policy recommendations and expertise that will emerge from the discussions will contribute to, consolidate the analyses currently underway in order to advance international technical discussions on how developing countries can realise women's economic opportunities by harnessing the potential arising from evolving production structures focusing specifically on key trends such as the rise of digital trade and disruptive technologies, the intensification of standards in value chains and, on the other hand foster the dialogue on how to maximize the relationship between women entrepreneurs, financial services  in the context global value chains.
 
Ultimately, ICTSD will leverage the knowledge generated during this meeting to develop and refine a comprehensive African regional engagement strategy on gender and trade so as to ensure that gender can effectively be mainstreamed in the implementation and remaining negotiating phases of the African Continental Free Trade Area.
 
ICTSD gratefully acknowledges funding from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) for part of the research developed under this initiative.
