Training on Understanding How Global Value Chains are Affected by Environmental Aspects

February 19, 2018 - February 20, 2018

- Jakarta

A training workshop was offered on environmental aspects of global value chains (GVCs). GVCs, a globalization phenomenon where different production stages take place in different countries, have re-structured international trade in many industries. Environmental issues and standards, including eco-labelling, are increasingly shaping GVCs structures and dynamics. To reap benefits from GVCs, policymakers need to understand how they operate in specific industries, especially those with competitive advantage potential. This includes understanding how environmental issues can result in a restructuring of GVC governance, such as in coffee industry. Policy makers also need to understand the opportunities and challenges in in GVCs, including livelihoods effects on millions of smallholders.
