UN ESCAP – Policy Hackathon on Model Provisions for Trade in Times of Crisis and Pandemic in Regional and other Trade Agreements

This Policy Hackathon is organized as part of a United Nations Initiative on Model Provisions for Trade in Times of Crisis and Pandemic in Regional and other Trade Agreements, in collaboration with ARTNeT, WTO, CUTS and other organizations from civil society, academia and the private sector.

In support of “building back better” after COVID-19, this Policy Hackathon aims to gather relevant inputs from all interested stakeholders from government, academia, civil society and private sector to support the development of provisions that could be included in regional and other trade and/or economic partnership agreements to guide national trade policies during and after a crisis or pandemic. Selected participants will have 45 days, starting 8 June 2020, to contribute innovative solutions towards ensuring that the collective benefits of trade arrangements are least compromised in a situation of crisis and pandemic. Contributions are expected to focus primarily on how trade agreements/provisions can more effectively keep essential supply chains flowing and trade lanes open; and support a timely response and recovery from crisis.
