Since its foundation more than 50 years ago, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development – UNCTAD – has been a key partner supporting countries in meeting their development objectives. UNCTAD has helped countries in the pursuit of shared prosperity by backing policymaking with sound research and analysis, providing a forum for open and constructive dialogue on development issues, and providing technical support to make a difference on the ground.
We are now entering a new era with the sustainable development goals – one that should ensure dignity for all, prosperity for all and a sustainable planet for all. UNCTAD stands ready to help developing countries and transition economies to achieve the world we want by 2030.
Sustainable development is at the heart of UNCTAD's work. UNCTAD provides high-quality and evidence-based analysis that feeds national, regional and international policies with the aim of generating inclusive sustainable development.
Based on such analysis, UNCTAD's technical assistance builds the capacities needed in developing countries and countries with economies in transition for equitable integration into the global economy and to improve the well-being of their populations.
This UNCTAD Toolbox contains information on our technical cooperation products that can assist countries in putting in place the policies, regulations and institutional frameworks and in mobilizing the resources needed to fulfil the ambitions of the post-2015 development agenda.
UNCTAD delivers results. We count on our partners to help bring about the ambitious transformations that, together, we can deliver.
