United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD)

Its members originally stemming from the developing countries composing the Non Aligned Movement and then the Conference on Problems for Developing Countries in 1964 came together under the mandate of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. It mainly works to champion prosperity for its members and integrate them into the mechanisms of trade, investment, and development on an equitable basis. As a permanent UN intergovernmental body UNCTAD in OxIMUN  aside from conducting negotiations within its own committee will be working towards a grander final resolution. Rather than producing a final resolution which solely reflects its efforts UNCTAD, like the G20, will be producing a resolution which attempts to reflect the discussions being had throughout the weekend by all Intermediate Committees. However, due to its commitment to equitable international development, not just the protection of global financial interests its mandate will contrast that of the G20 in this regard.
