The International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) aims to influence the international trade system such that it advances the goal of sustainable development. As an independent, non-profit, and non-governmental organization, ICTSD engages a broad range of actors in ongoing dialogue on trade and sustainable development policy. In advancing its mission, the Centre has become a leading broker of knowledge and information on trade policy and sustainable development. With a global network of governmental, non-governmental, and inter-governmental partners, ICTSD plays a unique, systemic role as a provider of original, non-partisan reporting and facilitation services. The Global Platform on Climate Change, Trade and Sustainable Energy of the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) mobilizes technical and political expertise to address the nexus between trade, climate change and energy, in order to foster strong multilateral regimes that promote the transition to a low-carbon economy and a sustainable energy future. Through research and analysis, as well as policy dialogues, the Global Platform advances the analytical capacity of stakeholders, supports their interaction with policy makers, and builds effective cross-disciplinary understanding so that solutions can be built and agreed by the international community.
