The UNCTAD Toolbox contains information on our technical cooperation products that can assist countries in putting in place the policies, regulations and institutional frameworks and in mobilizing the resources needed to fulfil the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.



Empowering people, investing in their future

The transformative 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity. It aims to end poverty in all its forms and improve human well-being. The successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals require, on the one hand, sound strategies and policies by Governments and, on the other hand, the active participation of all people from different sectors of society, including local authorities, farmers, business and industry and non-governmental organizations. To support policymaking and the effective participation of people in this new development process, it is essential to strengthen their skills and update their knowledge bases through capacity-building activities. UNCTAD has developed well-targeted technical assistance programmes, including training, to build capacity for various stakeholders. For example, it promotes entrepreneurship through practical programmes for small and medium-sized enterprises and support to Governments in formulating national entrepreneurship strategies. It strengthens the knowledge and skills of developing countries on port management, e-commerce and trade statistics through blended learning. Furthermore, UNCTAD supports developing country policymakers in mainstreaming gender equality in trade policy and empowering women in trade.
