Natural disasters and trade – Presentation by WTO Secretariat
December 20, 2018. (Thursday) 13:00-14:00
Mr. Michael George Roberts (The Head of the Aid for Trade Unit in the Development Division, The World Trade Organization (WTO))
The WTO is engaged in a research project examining natural disasters and their trade effects. The research seeks to examine the impacts of natural disasters (hydro-meteorological and geo-physical events) on trade, with a particular focus on some recently disaster-affected countries. The study seeks to examine trade issues that arise in disaster response, recovery and resilience.
