Please join the WNG International Roundtable when we meet with Tom McInerney, Founder and Director of the Treaty Effectiveness Initiative (TEI), who will discuss with us "New Trends in Responsible Agricultural Investment". Tom is a member of the WNG International Council.
WNG roundtable meetings offer ample opportunity for discussion with our guest speakers. In this session, Tom will introduce WNG Members to new developments in responsible agriculture investment and discuss the role of the private sector in facilitating sustainability and ensuring responsible business practices in agriculture. Our conversation will explore the implications of these developments on existing sustainability practices and identify the challenges and opportunities they present. We look forward to an engaging discussion.

McInerney is an international corporate lawyer and strategist with particular expertise on multilateral treaties and regulatory matters in the areas of agriculture, food, and natural resources. He advises numerous international organizations, including the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the UN Environmental Program (UNEP), Bioversity International, and the World Health Organization (WHO), on innovative solutions to enhance the performance of global regulatory treaties. In his recent book, Strategic Treaty Management: Practice and Implications (Cambridge University Press 2015), he developed an original framework for understanding, managing, and solving global problems through international law and institutions.
