Key Issues

COP21-United-200.jpgThe event brings together the three international trade institutions - UNCTAD, WTO and ITC - and their United Nations and non-United Nations partners.

The development agenda is an increasingly important component of climate change policies as recognized by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change under the term complementary benefits.

Trade, along with finance and technology, has an important role to play in leveraging the various complementary benefits.

At the same time, climate policies can and do influence trade among countries, promoting more sustainable emission patterns and greater resilience for enterprises in particular for small businesses.

As COP21 concludes, trade-related issues will certainly find their way on the agenda of the UNFCCC Subsidiary Body for Implementation, which works on cross-cutting issues.

The international trade institutions can certainly contribute to and benefit from this work.
