Center of Concern at conferences on trade and finance, debt

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Sun, Jul 10, 2016

On July 17-22, 2016, RBW Project Director Aldo Caliari will be in Nairobi (Kenya), attending the Fourteenth Session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD XIV). At the conference, held every four years, the membership of the organization decides on its work program for the period until the next conference. Being the first such quadrennial gathering after the global commitments on Sustainable Development Goals of last year, the role of UNCTAD in helping countries, especially developing ones, implement the goals will feature prominently on its agenda.

On the preceding days, also in Nairobi, he will be attending a global assembly of organizations working on debt and development (July 13-14) and the UNCTAD Civil Society Forum, which starts on the 15th – although it then continues to run alongside the rest of the UNCTAD XIV Conference.
