About the Event
Developing and least developed countries consider trade as critical to their economic growth and development, and Aid for Trade as an important means to build their trade-related capacity building needs. At the same time, they are the worst affected by climate change, while being the less pollutants. Impacts of climate change are visible including on the trade of many developing countries and LDCs. But they have limited means to adapt and mitigate, and hence need substantial climate finance assistance.

RAISING CLIMATE AND SDGS AMBITION

The Third Global Conference on Strengthening Synergies between the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will take place on 20-21 July at the United Nations University in Tokyo, Japan, in a hybrid format, with both in-person and virtual participation. Climate and SDG synergies and co-benefits can only be sufficiently realized if policy makers from all sectors accord these issues high political priority. A better understanding of these co-benefits in national, regional and global contexts can spur more deliberate action and collaboration towards realizing them.

Background
This year’s Global Review takes place against the backdrop of overlapping crises. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to exert a toll on human health and cause turmoil in global trade. Economies everywhere face inflationary pressures with high food and energy prices hitting poor people hardest – and placing additional pressures on hard-pressed public budgets. These pressures are further exacerbated by the war in Ukraine and food security concerns that it has caused. Trade continues to play an important role as a driver not just of economic recovery, but also poverty alleviation and women's economic empowerment. Trade is also an integral part of the transition to low-carbon models of growth and a just climate transition.
