African Civil Society Call to Governments at UNCTAD 14

African Civil Society is calling on Governments at this 14th session of UNCTAD to rise up to the fundamental challenge of equitable development in and for Africa within the global order. ‘UNCTAD’s foundational vision is as critical today as 50 years ago. The specific developmental challenges which UNCTAD sought to address are still here with us, and in the case of Africa have become more acute’ the statement stated. Hence the conference must provide UNCTAD with the necessary space and means to articulate the policy requirements of Africa’s structural economic transformation and work in support of their realization.
