My name is Alexander Kasterine. I work as Senior Advisor in the Trade for Sustainable Development Programme at the International Trade Centre, a UN/WTO agency based in Geneva.
The blog is a diary of observations and thoughts from reading, field visits and events I attend during the course of my work for the UN on sustainability issues. I am particularly interested about the role that trade and markets can play to promote better use of natural resources and improved livelihoods in developing countries. I have a PhD in Agricultural and Environmental Economics from Imperial College, London.
