Working Together: How To Make Trade Contribute to Climate Action

How can we further capitalise on trade measures’ ability to address climate change mitigation? Is the overall impact of current climate response measures trade restrictive? Or, do these measures manage to achieve both environmental and economic goals? How can current governance of climate and trade be expanded or amended to make climate response measures more trade-friendly or to use trade more effectively toward achieving climate action goals? This paper explores these questions while putting forth several proposals for using trade tools to further progress toward climate change mitigation.
