Global Advocacy Forum – Latin America


The Global Advocacy Forum Latin America will take place in June 2022, consisting of two events: a 1-day interactive workshop in Santiago, Chile (June 1st) and an online high level business-policy dialogue (June 30th). 

As the first of a three-events series of Regional Fora to be held in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, this event provides a platform for Latin American stakeholders to exchange on most pressing regional issues and discuss the present and future of responsible sourcing in Latin America. Regional opinion leaders from policy, industry, civil society and science are invited for interactive sessions to interface with RE-SOURCING activities and outputs, and to discuss regional needs and challenges for the implementation of responsible sourcing. The outcomes of the event will enable the identification and integration of region-specific inputs into the processes for a globally shared definition of responsible sourcing and related agenda setting.

Topics to be discussed during the event include:

  • How is the responsible sourcing concept understood and implemented in Latin America?
  • What are the challenges and solutions for implementing responsible sourcing practices in the Latin American region?
  • What targets and priorities for responsible sourcing are pertinent to the region, encompassing economic, social, environmental and governance aspects?
  • What is the degree of practicality and transferability of EU sectoral roadmaps in the Latin American context for the creation of a global playing field?

Global Advocacy Forum Latin America is composed of two complementary events taking place in distinct dates in June 2022: a 1-day in-person workshop in Santiago, Chile and an online high-level regional policy dialogue.

The second part of the event is dedicated to a World Café session, where participants will be divided into smaller working groups and will have the opportunity to deep-dive into specific issues related to responsible sourcing, encompassing environmental, social, governance and economic aspects.
