Förderung von inklusiven und nachhaltigen globalen Wertschöpfungsketten: Die Rolle der G20







A significant share of global production takes place in global value chains (GVCs). Participating in GVCs is widely associated with economic benefits, such as productivity and employment creation, and considered one of the driving forces of growth and development worldwide. However, the sustainability of production in GVCs is increasingly contested, and associated social and environmental costs can be hefty. As production in GVCs entails that multiple actors, both private and public, located in various countries jointly produce goods and services, the sustainable governance of GVCs is best addressed in a coordinated multilateral effort.

The webinar, co-organized by UNIDO and the International Affairs Institute (IAI), and supported by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW Kiel) and the German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA), will offer insights into what it takes for multilateral actors, such as the G20 and others, to address and mainstream sustainability into the global production and trading systems.

Join our online discussion on how multilateral actors can contribute to the sustainable governance of global value chains. You will have the opportunity to engage and interact with our speakers, and share your questions and opinions as the debate progresses.
