GATT, the WTO and Sustainable Development: Positioning the work program on trade and environment

By IISD on October 5, 2001
IISD believes the transition to sustainable development will be facilitated by ringing the trade, environment and development communities together in a mutually supportive context. A starting set of interlinked principles will enable the communities to understand each other better and find common ground. This could lead them to develop new rules and agreements that enhance the relationship of environment and economy. IISD published Trade and Sustainable Development Principles in February, 1994. We now believe this work should be followed by specific analysis related to regional agreements and to GATT.
