Hearing with Civil Society
24 May 2018
14:00-17:00 hrs., Palais des Nations
Geneva, Switzerland

Key Issues

The Hearing with Civil Society provides a platform for UNCTAD management and delegates from our member states to engage with representatives of civil society.

The Hearing will focus on the following topics:

  • New ways in which the United Nations could address the crisis of multilateralism and trade, its development machinery, and what would be the contribution of UNCTAD

  • Industrial policies and productive capacity policies for a digital economy

  • Plugging financial leakages, mobilizing domestic and international resources to deliver the SDGs

  • Building resilience to multiple shocks affecting people and sustainable development

These topics have been chosen because they will lead the high-level discussions at the annual meeting of UNCTAD's Trade and Development Board (4-12 June), which oversees our work between the ministerial conferences.
