About the Trade and SD News Community List

The Trade and SD News list is a Google Groups community mailing list moderated by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). 

This list brings together actors working on the nexus between trade and sustainable development, enabling a regular forum for discussion and exchange. We invite members to share information about the latest policy developments of relevance to the trade and sustainable development community, as well as upcoming events, new research, and any other related resources. Members are welcome to post in the language of their choosing.

The list may be joined by visiting the following link:


Subscribers should sign out of any currently logged-in personal Google accounts, then click “Sign in to view this group” to create or log in to a Google account for their email address. Once the desired email address is signed in, the user should click on “Ask to join group”. Subscribers can opt to receive messages from the list as they are sent out, or to receive a once-daily digest of all emails submitted that day.

Once your request to join the group has been approved, you can submit emails, exactly as you would like it to appear to subscribers, to the group address: tradeSDnews@googlegroups.com.

All messages will be moderated. Please share news about your organization’s trade and sustainable development activities. To keep the list focused, we will not approve responses or comments to messages. 

This community list is made possible with the support of the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.
