These video clips are a record of the presentations and discussion from IISD's October 13, 2011 conference: Trade, Investment and Climate Change: Searching for progress on key issues. The conference took place at the World Trade Organization (WTO) over the course of a single day, and featured high level speakers from a broad array of backgrounds, addressing three related topics: green industrial policy (such as subsidies for renewables); new thinking on competitiveness and leakage, and the potential role of the trade community in light of climate challenges and the ongoing impasse of the Doha negotiations.
