Taking Stock of IIA Reform: Multi-year Expert Meeting

The IIA stocktaking will occur on the first day of the UNCTAD Multi-year Expert Meeting on Investment, Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Productive Capacity-building and Sustainable Development, scheduled for 16 - 17 March 2016.

Why join the UNCTAD expert meeting?

IIA reform is being undertaken at all levels of policymaking - national, bilateral, regional and multilateral. Join the debate to find out how this is happening and what can be done to effectively reform international investment governance in line with today's sustainable development imperative.

Join us to:

  • Engage with other experts: join the discussion with high-level experts from the investment and development community, including governments, inter-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society and academia.
  • Share your experience: experts will share experience of their country's or stakeholders' approach to IIA reform to identify lessons learned, best practices and the way forward.
  • Review UNCTAD tools on IIA reform: experts will review their use of UNCTAD's Investment Policy Framework for Sustainable Development and UNCTAD's Roadmap for IIA Reform, providing feedback, comments and suggestions for future editions.
  • Shape the IIA Conference at the 5th World Investment Forum (WIF) in Nairobi, Kenya: share your ideas for possible discussion topics, themes and outcomes of the 19 July 2016 IIA Conference.
