Potential solutions for phase 3: aligning the objectives of UNCITRAL working group iii with states’ international obligations to combat climate change

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Working Group III has a broad mandate to work on possible reform of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS).

The third and final phase will involve the development of potential reform options.
