The webinar considered the relationship between Geographical Indications (GIs) and Sustainable Development within the context of Nigeria. The panel, which comprised six experts on the subject matter – GIs, explored the concept, the international system underpinning its administration, the opportunities for Nigeria to utilise local GI products in (international) trade relations, the mechanisms for registering GIs in Nigeria and the necessary national policy and/or legislative frameworks that could support Nigeria’s growth in this area.
