What is the SFT Framework?

The UNCTAD Sustainable Freight Transport (SFT) Framework provides a modular step-by-step process that details how to plan, design, develop and implement tailored sustainable freight transport strategies.

It offers guidance and practical tools to stakeholders from both the public and the private sector across all modes of transport to evaluate the status quo, promote sustainable freight transport systems and track progress.

Who are we?

UNCTAD is part of the UN Secretariat. We report to the UN General Assembly and the Economic and Social Council but have our own membership, leadership, and budget. We are also part of the United Nations Development Group.

We support developing countries to access the benefits of a globalized economy more fairly and effectively. And we help equip them to deal with the potential drawbacks of greater economic integration. To do this, we provide analysis, facilitate consensus-building, and offer technical assistance.
