In Austria, Stockholm Environment Institute and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The agreement is an overarching mechanism to foster cooperation on trade and environment, backed up by the research and convening capacities of SEI and UNCTAD.
The main purpose of collaboration between SEI and UNCTAD is to:
- • Enable the full utilization of our respective comparative advantages and initiatives in promoting sustainable development.
- • Ensure a more equitable distribution of benefits and risks among the various actors in the global circular economy arena.
Among possible areas for future collaboration, SEI’s work on supply chain transparency, international finance, bioeconomy, and transnational climate impact is of particular relevance for UNCTAD.
