UNECE is partnering with UNIDO to organize an international event in Cairo on 24-25 May 2022 to support the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s textile and leather industry in its effort to embrace sustainable and circular business models.

The event is organized in conjunction with the initiative “Enhancing Traceability and Transparency for Sustainable and Circular Value Chains in Garment and Footwear”, jointly implemented with the UN International Trade Centre (ITC), and support of the European Union.

The conference will explore challenges, opportunities and approaches to address the industry climate impact, to prepare for the UNFCCC COP 27, taking place in Egypt, in November this year. Policy makers, key industry actors, financial institutions and cooperation agencies will all take part.
