Sustainable & Just Economic Systems

The ways in which we design and implement economic systems have critical impacts on sustainability, peace, and justice. QUNO strives to foster economic systems that deliver prosperity for all. This means that those economic systems improve livelihoods, strengthen resilience, and ensure just transitions to sustainability for the most vulnerable stakeholders. Our Sustainable & Just Economic Systems programme is an evolution and continuation of past QUNO work on Food & Sustainability, and Trade and Development. To this end, we seek human-centric and system approaches in areas such as agriculture & fisheries, economy-environment interactions, and trade & investment.

Fresh thinking is needed on economic models and paradigms if we want to address the root causes of inequity and environmental destruction in the longer term.
