The main objective of the workshop was to increase awareness, knowledge and understanding, and build the capacity of policymakers to formulate and promote mutually supportive trade and environment policies, and to enhance cooperation in this area. The workshop was an integral part of the activities of Phase II of the African Trade Policy Centre (ATPC), hosted by ECA. The center’s trade and environment activities include undertaking studies and conducting training workshops, with a special focus on three regional economic communities, namely, ECOWAS, the East African Community (EAC) and the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). The workshop built on the lessons learned from a similar workshop held in 2009 jointly for the EAC and SADC and their member States.
