Trade, Global Policy, and the Environment
AbstractInterest in the trade and environment debate has intensified as a result of international trade agreements and because many proposed solutions to the climate change problem have potential implications for the global trading system. Clearly more empirical work is needed to inform the debate, guide policymakers toward solutions, and help set priorities. This volume is an attempt to further our understanding of the empirical links between trade and the environment. Thirteen chapters, which were presented as papers at a World Bank conference in April 1998, focus on three main themes: 1. Effects of trade liberalization and growth on the environment; 2. The "pollution haven" hypothesis ; 3. Economic instruments for resolving global environmental problems .
