Event on October 29. “Achieving the SDGs will only be possible if we align climate and trade policy in a way that works for countries most vulnerable to economic and environmental shocks, such as those defined by the UN as least developed countries (LDCs). As negotiators from around the globe prepare for COP26 and representatives from the world’s largest economies meet at this year’s G20 meeting, it is important to strengthen the LDCs positioning in climate and trade negotiations.
Join a conversation with experts from the climate and trade arenas to hear how the LDCs are aligning their climate and trade strategies to support their development and transition out of LDC status. The discussion will explore cross-cutting themes such as carbon markets and standards, technology transfer, aid for trade, and climate finance.
This event is part of the Aligning climate and trade policy for LDCs and graduates project. The project, supported by the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), is a partnership between EIF, ODI and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) aimed at equipping graduated or in-transition LDCs with the evidence, networks and platforms to effectively align and secure their climate and trade strategies in international negotiations.”
