WATCH: A Call for a Global Green New Deal
The multilateral system is in crisis. After years of accentuating financial instability, inequality, and climate change, the system is now under attack on all fronts and may be pushed to the limit by the actions of the United States. In late 2018 and early 2019, the GDP Center partnered with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) to craft a series of workshops and consultations among stakeholders from the global policy, advocacy, and research communities. Our goal was to advance a critique of the current multilateral system, as manifest in the trade and investment regime, and articulate a set of goals and principles for reform and regeneration.
Our new video with UNCTAD highlights the urgent need for a Global Green New Deal. The content is based on two reports. The first, our joint report A New Multilateralism for Shared Prosperity; and second, UNCTAD’s 2019 Trade and Development Report “Financing A Global Green New Deal.”Learn More about a New Multilateralism
