A Standing Conference on Trade and Environment

By IISD on January 16, 2002
IISD and IUCN propose the convening of a Standing Conference on Trade and Environment (SCTE). The Conference would be a forum for achieving coherence in environmental policy as it relates to trade. It would gather the key nvironmental actors with an interest in trade policy, review policy objectives and proposals, and seek to formulate practical recommendations, which could be introduced to the WTO and other policy forums. SCTE is would be a light structure, not a new organisation. Uniquely, it would gather intergovernmental organizations, secretariats, and key elements of civil society.
