UNECE and the Global Goals

UNECE helps countries to convene and cooperate on norms, standards and conventions
in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

This impacts the life of citizens every single day when they, for instance, buy food, drive
a car, breathe clean air, transport goods, handle chemicals, save energy or walk in the


UNECE helps implement the Sustainable Development Goals by translating the global goals into norms, standards and conventions, developing statistical recommendations and capacity, undertaking performance reviews and studies (environment, innovation, regulatory barriers, housing, forestry, statistics), building capacity and engaging in partnerships with the private sector and civil society.

“UNECE’s achievements have made it a go-to source for improving
global public goods and services, with more than 100 countries beyond
the UNECE region benefiting from its work”.
