Webinar on Consumer demand for Sustainable products in Asia: Successes and challenges.

On September 21, 2021, Dr. Nguyen Bao Thoa, Director of VIRI, Eco-Fair project director chaired by VIRI will participate as a speaker for Webinar on Consumer demand for Sustainable products in Asia: Successes and challenges. This webinar will be organized by International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and Evidensia

Asia is home to the majority of the world’s population and consumption patterns on the continent have significant implications at a global scale. The webinar will explore some consumption trends of coffee, cotton, palm oil and tea compliant with VSSs in Asia, while examining the enabling and limiting factors that influence buyers and consumers to purchase sustainably grown options. The webinar will also enable a discussion on recommendations, pathways that could be implemented to boost sustainable consumption of these commodities in the region.

This is a good opportunity to share and introduce the Eco-Fair project “Promotion of supply and demand of Eco-Fair Agri-food processing products in Vietnam” sponsored by EU under the SWITCH Asia programme with a focus on consumer demand for sustainable products in Asia.
