Nigeria Working Group on Globalization, Trade and Sustainable Development
Institution: CSO Working Group
Theme: Institution and HR Management
Implementation Date: Jan 01, 2004
Summary: The CSO Working Group on Globalization, Trade and Sustainable Development (TSD-Nigeria) is a platform for articulating inputs of civil society organizations (CSOs) into the Nigerian, regional and global trade agendas. It was formed in May 2004 by participants at a series of National Stakeholders Workshops held across the country.
 
The TSD-Nigeria web site is conceived as a multi-layered, multi-purpose resource. It is intended to facilitate the understanding of international trade; globalization; and World Trade Organization, NEPAD and African, Caribbean and Pacific States-European Union agreements on national development, with a special focus on food security and sustainable development. Civil society stakeholders have used this knowledge to enhance their understanding of the negotiation processes of international trade agreements and thus boost their participation at the international level.


Impact: The web site facilitates dialogue between civil society and the Government on the international trade commitments of Nigeria and strengthens public-private partnerships, civil society initiatives supported by the Government, and overall communication between institutions and civil society entities.
 
The activities initiated, supported or reflected on the web site should facilitate the establishment of institutional frameworks for cascading the knowledge and implementation of the Government’s trade policy at the State and local government levels. The web site has played a vital role in generating wide-public debate by providing all stakeholders with an opportunity to offer their inputs on international trade issues.
