The adoption of the Sustainable Development Strategy in 2001 represented a new attempt to address the challenges that the EU was facing. The deterioration of the environment, the climate change as well as structural changes of world economy represent the new framework that ought to be carried on by the multilateral environmental governance structures. One of the important parts of that system is the WTO and its Doha Development Agenda. This paper outlines the consequences of the Sustainable Development Policy for the multilateral governace. It is based on the characteristic of the EU's sustainable development policy and the contribution of the WTO and related Multilateral Environmental Agreements to the solution of the global environmental problems.
