Trade and climate change: issues in perspective

This volume is the result of a trade and climate change seminar held in Copenhagen in June 2008. Following the structure of that seminar, it explores six themes that link trade and investment to climate change, for each asking where trade policy might be of service to climate change objectives. It lays out the background issues for each theme, recounts the in-depth discussions on each from Copenhagen, and describes the research agenda that might guide further efforts. In the end, this work is an important step forward in better understanding the complex web of trade and climate change linkages.
