State of Trade and Environment Research: Building a New Research Agenda

By Aaron Cosbey, Konrad von Moltke on November 19, 2004
This paper sets out a new research agenda on the issues of trade and environment. Based on a survey of over 300 research documents in the area over two years, and the inputs of an international group of experts, it lays out where the coming challenges lie, and where the current research effort falls short of preparing us to meet them. It concludes that too much of the current focus is on yesterday's issues, and that most of the issues of import are not those on the WTO's current agenda.
