Webinar on Consumer demand for Sustainable products in Asia: Successes and challenges
On September 21, 2021, Dr. Nguyen Bao Thoa, 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. The webinar organizers are the 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. This webinar will present research on consumption trends of certified and sustainable products in Asia, focusing on cotton, palm oil, tea, and coffee. Various actors (buyers, VSSs, producers) will then share successes, challenges, and potential ways to increase sustainable consumption in Asia. 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.
