    Latest Web update: *Gender & Trade (IGTN) Page*
    The International Coalition for Development Action is both a coalition of mainly development NGOs and networks and other civil society organizations in the North and South, as well as an advocacy NGO.

    ICDA was founded in 1976 as a result of NGO coordination focused on trade and development issues at UNCTAD Conferences. ICDA is committed to building a more just and equitable international order, with specific focus on trade and trade-related issues.

    The Brussels Secretariat acts as an information clearing house, monitoring media and specialized publications for relevant input. The Secretariat's participation in major (and minor) seminars and/or conferences and intergovernmental meetings provide yet other sources of information.

    One of its primary aims is to promote issues of international development, including advocacy and education on the adverse aspects of international trade and trade-related isuues.

    It has both NGO accreditation with the WTO Secretariat as well as consultative status with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
