Tuesday, 18 April 2017 (10:00 to 13:00)

Developing countries face an annual funding gap of $2.5 trillion with regard to the Sustainable Development Goals, and private sector contributions will be critical to the realization of the Goals. In line with the UNCTAD Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development (IPFSD) and the Road Map for International Investment Agreement Reform, this course will focus on the design of national investment policies and laws and international investment agreements (IIA) that take into consideration the new generation of investment policies, which place inclusive growth and sustainable development at the centre of efforts to attract and benefit from investment.

The objective of this course is to help delegates deepen their understanding of the key issues in national and international investment policymaking for sustainable development. The course will provide an introduction to the key determinants for foreign investment and discuss recent trends in national and international investment policies and regulations.
