Desde el inicio de las crisis financiera y económica, UNCTAD ha desempeñado un papel importante en la identificación de las causas principales de las crisis, brindándoles asistencia a los países en desarrollo en la búsqueda de soluciones frente a los impactos de las crisis, y abogando por la reforma de las políticas y la gobernanza mundial económica y financiera con el fin de prevenir la recurrencia de crisis similares. Estos son todos roles clave que ningún otro organismo económico multilateral ha cumplido desde una perspectiva centrada en el desarrollo.
