International Investment Agreements
 
UNCTAD's Work Programme on International Investment Agreements (IIAs) actively assists policymakers, government officials and other IIA stakeholders to formulate international investment rules that effectively foster sustainable development and
inclusive growth.
 
Main goals:
  • Enhance the sustainable development dimension of international investment agreements (IIAs)

  • Provide comprehensive analysis on key issues arising from the complexity of the international investment regime

  • Develop a wide range of tools to support the formulation of more balanced international investment policies

 
The three pillars of activities:
  • Research and policy analysis - monitoring trends, identifying key emerging issues and providing cutting-edge knowledge on IIAs from a sustainable development perspective

  • Technical assistance - delivering trainings, seminars and workshops and offering ad-hoc advice to strengthen the capacity of beneficiaries in handling the complexities of the IIA regime

  • Intergovernmental consensus-building - exchanging and sharing best practices and experience with the view to fostering global investment governance
