Handbook of Trade Policy for Development

Steve Charnovitz

Oxford University Press

Steve Charnovitz examines the linkages between trade and the environment, primarily from the legal perspective. He contends that trade officials are now much more aware of the linkages between trade and environment and are committed to avoiding conflicts, whereas environmental officials recognize how trade restrictions can be overused or misused in the pursuit of environmental goals. Since policies in one country can impose externalities on other countries and market prices are not fully reflective of environmental costs, there is a need for international governance to manage the transborder conflicts that inevitably ensue. Charnovitz explores the various provisions of WTO law that address the environment and discusses the environmental issues to be addressed in the Doha Round, the environmental provisions of regional trade agreements, and the environmental policy and negotiating implications for developing countries.

Keywords:   Trade, environment, WTO, externalities, governance, Doha Round, regional trade agreements, developing countries
