Policy brief on International Investment Agreements and Climate Action23 Mar 2022
UNCTAD and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) released a policy brief on International Investment Agreements and Climate Action. The policy brief is based on a joint webinar held on 4 February 2022 (see here for more information).
The policy brief highlights key policy recommendations aimed at supporting the reform of International Investment Agreements (IIAs) in order to advance climate goals, and to ensure that IIAs do not hinder states from implementing climate measures and accelerating the transition to low-carbon economies.
UNCTAD and IIED will continue to cooperate on issues relating to IIAs and climate action to ensure that investment policy is consistent with, and proactively advances, national, regional and global climate commitments.
