Regional OCRT Agenda
The agenda for the Regional OCRT will be framed around the research interviews for the Market Opportunity Scoping Project (MOSP) being carried out by Change Agency for Textile Exchange and CRS.
The discussion will be grouped into three broad stakeholder categories looking at:
- What can Governments & NGOs do?
- What can the Value Chain do?
- What can the Market do?
