    HNLU Raipur is Oganising First Global Online Conference On "Climate Action, SDGs, And Trade: A Path Towards A Greener Future"


    On a global scale, the climate change we are experiencing is a serious and pressing issue of our time. As António Guterres, Secretary-General of the UN, noted at the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP27, “We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot on the accelerator.”

    A collaborative effort is required to achieve the SDGs, including trade policies that support sustainable practices and climate action. To mitigate climate change, adopting sustainable development practices and transforming the way we do business, trade, and commerce is necessary. Trade policies can support these efforts by enabling the transition to a greener economy and promoting sustainable trade practices. Therefore, this conference aims to bring together experts and stakeholders to discuss how to align trade policies with sustainable development and climate action.
