On 12 June 2012, UNCTAD launched its new and comprehensive Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development (IPFSD). UNCTAD’s IPFSD is conceived to assist policymakers design policies that effectively mobilize investment and ensure its positive contribution to sustainable development.
The IPFSD consists of:
(1) a set of Core Principles for Investment Policymaking.
(2) guidelines for national investment policies.
(3) options for designing international investment agreements (IIAs), accompanied by annotations to the IPFSD, which will also be published in the forthcoming World Investment Report 2012.
The IPFSD is a living document accompanied by UNCTAD's Investment Policy Hub, an online discussion forum for all interested stakeholders who are invited to comment on the different areas covered by the IPFSD, share experiences, raise questions and make suggestions. This will contribute to UNCTAD’s next revision of the IPFSD.
The 10 July event is open to all interested investment and development stakeholders. It will be followed by a reception in the Delegates' Restaurant on 8th floor of the Palais. All participants who do not have a valid UN badge must register in order to access the building. For registration, please send an email to Farazally.Rojid@unctad.org
