Can Technology Transfer Induce the South to Sign International Environmental Agreements? – revised version: Technology Transfer and the South’s Participation in an International Environmental Agreement
We develop a North-South model of international trade and transboundary pollution to analyze the relationship between environmental technology transfer and the South's incentive to sign an international environmental agreement (IEA). First, we show that technology transfer could either increase or reduce the South's incentive to sign the IEA. Second, we show that the South's participation in the IEA would reduce the market incentive of technology transfer. Both results have very clear policy implications for (i) the sequence of technology transfer and the South's IEA membership and (ii) the legitimacy of South's subsidies for technology transfer.
