UNCTAD's contribution to the Rio+20 Summit
UNCTAD was called upon early to assist in the UNCSD Rio +20 preparatory process, specifically in the analysis of the trade and development dimensions of the transition toward greener and more equitable economies.
During the last two years, UNCTAD has been actively convening several expert meetings and produced quality research in order to promote a better understanding and unveil critical policy issues on the role of trade in green economy in the context sustainable development and poverty eradication.
To continue and deepen its contribution to the UNCSD Rio+20 Summit as well as in the implementation of its outcomes, UNCTAD is organising a series of side events. The organization of these side events has been lead by the Trade, Environment, Climate Change and Sustainable Development Branch of UNCTAD jointly with key governmental, Intergovernmental, private sector and civil society partners.
