Mark Halle, Director of IISD's Trade & Investment program, talks about the intersection between international trade and climate change.

IISD has explored the linkages between trade and climate change for over a decade. The linkages include:

  • Liberalization of trade in low-carbon goods
  • Border carbon adjustment mechanisms
  • Intellectual property rights and technology transfer
  • Investment in clean energy technologies
  • Fossil fuel subsidy reduction
  • Trade law flexibilities for subsidies to address climate change.
