Concerted action on trade and environment

Objective

The trade and environment policy and research agendas have expanded rapidly. Following conclusion of the Uruguay Round the agenda of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) expanded to incorporate a number of environment related issues. The rapid expansion of the trade and environment agenda has created a major area of research that is attracting researchers in virtually all member states. This proposed concerted action aims to ensure the debate between these research centres and to draw new participants into the process. It also provides for dialog with policy makers. The concerted action will be structured around a series of substantive questions and will also respond to the dynamics of this evolving research agenda and generate new impulses for research. It will comprise of three annual members' meetings to identify and discuss priority research issues and three annual conferences to present current research to a wider audience.
