Introducing the Concept of Integrated Assessment of Trade Policies
SDPI organized the UNEP-sponsored workshop on “Introducing the Concept of Integrated Assessment of Trade Policies” from May 15-16, 2006 in Islamabad, Pakistan. The idea was to introduce the concept of integrated assessment to relevant stakeholders in Pakistan. Prior to the workshop, there was practically no awareness of the utility of integrated assessments, and certainly no capacity to conduct such assessments for trade policies. Apart from the aim of raising awareness about the integrated assessment tool, SDPI was interested in soliciting feedback and suggestions from the workshop participants on the potential for bringing the concept of integrated assessment into mainstream policymaking.
