This workshop is part of a technical assistance by FAO to Ecuador on banana production and trade under changing climate. It offers an opportunity for experts to present their findings from climate impact assessments on banana in Ecuador.
The main objectives of the workshop are to identify and discuss the key areas of concern facing the agriculture sector in relation to the commitments on agricultural subsidies made on accession to the WTO.
The training workshop will facilitate a greater understanding and implementation of the multilateral trading rules for agriculture as well as the agricultural trade commitments assumed by the CIS countries in the context of the WTO accession.
The consultation will feature a number of top experts in biophysical and economic modelling on climate change who will report and exchange on their latest research findings on climate change impacts on future agricultural/food supply shifts at global and regional levels.
