WTO Public Forum: Session on fossil fuel subsidies reform
October 10, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Moderated by Dr Walker (Ambassador of New Zealand to the WTO), the panel included Rachel Bae (Senior Counsellor at the OECD), Crispin Conroy (Representative Director at the International Chamber of Commerce) and Steven Stone (Chief of the Resources and Markets Branch at UN Environment). Panelists stressed that the process of phasing out fossil fuel subsidies should be among others: tailored to developing countries’ conditions, inclusive of the private-sector, contextualized within concerns for climate change and SDG implementation, and backed by a standardized way of reporting.
