Sustainable economic development, fair trade, and the Law.

Experts from international institutions, fair trade supply- and demand-side countries, civil society organizations and academia gathered in Rome on February 20-21, 2013 to discuss legal challenges, lessons learned and innovative legal practices in the promotion of fair trade, sustainable economic development and food security for marginalized communities around the world. The roundtable, organized by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO), featured legal expert panels discussing the legal foundations of fair trade, as well as innovative solutions to overcome regulatory barriers and provide producer communities and small and medium enterprises with access to new markets and economic opportunities. During the event, IDLO will also showcase outcomes of a legal empowerment program focusing on indigenous communities in the Chimborazo mountainous region of Ecuador.
