UNCTAD Ad Hoc Expert Meeting on the Green Economy: Trade and Sustainable Development Implications

The UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) is organizing an expert meeting to feed into the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), to be held in Brazil in 2012. The Ad Hoc Expert Meeting is being organized in close collaboration with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). It aims to explore ways in which the green economy, through trade-led growth, could become a pro-development income-generating instrument that will directly contribute to meeting the sustainable development imperative adopted at Rio in 1992.
