Abstract

Prepared under CPD's Capacity Building in Trade-Environment Issues in Bangladesh: Addressing the WTO Work Programme, the paper makes an attempt to analyse environmental issues in the context of multilateral trading systems and the developments taking place in the WTO, particularly in the context of their relevance to Bangladesh. While Part A focuses on various multilateral agreements in the WTO on environmental issues, Part B deals with liberalisation of environmental goods and services. Part C critically analyses the effects of environmental measures on market access. The paper highlights a range of environmental issues and debates emerging in the WTO, keeping in view Bangladesh's interests and puts forward a number of recommendations as regards Bangladesh's policy stance with respect to some of the key issues in the upcoming negotiations.
