They also highlight key policies that are critical to achieving these goals such as eliminating inefficient domestic support policies, promoting environmental sustainability, and supporting vulnerable populations with inclusive policies. The paper is part of a compilation published by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development examining the linkages between Sustainable Development Goal 2 and policies affecting trade and markets.
