As the range of public, private, and civil-society-led commitments and interventions for sustainable trade continue to grow and diversify, the question of how to better coordinate efforts and resources – effectively delivering on Sustainable Development Goal 17 focusing on ‘Partnerships’ – remains open. Taking the requirement for better harmonisation across the spectrum of existing policy instruments for sustainable trade as the starting point, we borrow the concepts of vertical and horizontal policy integration, and readapt them to the wide range of sustainable trade tools.
