OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector

Parallel Session: Responsible Supply Chains in MENA & Türkiye - launch of the OECD’s garment and footwear sector capacity building programme

Feb 22, 2024 | 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Room CC9


The five participating countries in a new regional OECD programme on RBC – Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia, and Türkiye – exported $51.9 billion in textile, garments, and footwear in 2022, forming a substantial portion of their exports. While businesses are developing initiatives to foster responsible supply chains, important gaps in implementing and mainstreaming risk-based approaches based on common standards remain. This session will launch the 2024 capacity-building activity to support garment and footwear businesses working in or from the region to improve their understanding of, and capacity to conduct, risk-based due diligence to build supply chain resilience, manage uncertainty and drive long-term value. See our training programme flyer for more information. Interpretation is available in French and Arabic. Arabic translation and Turkish translation of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector.
