A partnership with academia

Building knowledge for trade and development


altThe United Nations Conference on Trade and Development invites Vi members to contribute their expertise on "The global economic crisis and development - the way forward," as part of the organization's public symposium to be held May 10-11 in Geneva.

All substantive contributions must be received by April 30, and will be made available on the UNCTAD website. Those of publishable quality will be published into a compendium to be disseminated to a wider audience including networks of civil society organizations, private sector, parliamentarians, member States and academia. All submitting authors will be acknowledged. 

The symposium will treat two key topics: "Rethinking global economic governance:towards trade and financial reforms for enhancing development" and "Sustainable development strategies."
