Event type: 
UNCTAD14
The United Nations Committee on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) over many years has provided one of the less neo-liberal forums on trade and development in the UN system. PSI in the past has supported its work and will send a delegation to UNCTAD 14 which is taking place in Nairobi on 17-22 July this year.

PSI’s objectives at this UNCTAD are to ensure that the UN system stops the blind promotion of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), contributes to a more development-friendly trading system and promotes actions to increase domestic revenue collection for development through a range of tax justice measures.  

PSI has produced a position paper, will hold a forum on the problems with PPPs and will be releasing a new report titled PPPs and the SDG: Don’t believe the hype. PSI will also be attending the civil society forum and promoting our work through social media.

We ask that you let your government know, in advance of the meeting, that PPPs have no place in the development agenda and that you promote PSI’s research and social media to your members and local media.

 

Public Services International is also holding a special event on the sidelines of the UNCTAD14 conference.

Mission Impossible: development without public services

July 20, 15:00pm, CSO Forum
