ITTO Executive Director Dr Gerhard Dieterle was a panellist at the symposium, “Africa and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”, convened by Soka University in Yokohama on 1 September 2019. The symposium was a post-event of the 7th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD7), which was held on 28–30 August, also in Yokohama.
 
Dr Dieterle shared ITTO’s field experiences in opening up new development paths through the creation of legal and sustainable supply chains. Also at the symposium, students from Soka University presented the conclusions of group discussions on how young people could help create a future for Africa based on the SDGs.
