Trade, Development and Poverty Linkages (TDP) is a project being carried out in 15 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Europe with the support of Netherlands Agency for International Development and Department for International Development (DFID). It aims at strengthening linkages of trade, development and poverty reduction through focusing on distributional affects of development gains.
SDPI and Consumer Unity & Trust Society (CUTS) organized a conference on regional strategy for linkages in trade development policies. In association with the Foreign Trade Institute of Pakistan, SDPI discussed “Mainstream development through trade policy.” The discussion focused on issues of trade and its linkages and impact on gender, employment, development, poverty etc. In collaboration with Actionaid Pakistan a training of print and electronic media representatives was also held to emphasize the importance of rational distribution of gains of development. The purpose of the training was to enable the media personnel to define development in social and human perspective.
