Event Summary

As major economies move forward with ambitious plans to green their economies, the time is ripe to strengthen the nexus between trade, sustainable development, and the protection and preservation of the environment. Early progress could come through finalizing the World Trade Organization (WTO) negotiations to limit harmful fish subsidies and to liberalize trade in green goods. But more is needed. What could a WTO trade and environment negotiations agenda look like?
