About the product

The Handbook has been developed to highlight the relationship between environment and trade. The primary aim is to foster a broader understanding of these interlinkages to enable governments to develop practical approaches to integrate these policies. The publication will help the reader to understand how trade can affect the environment, for better and for worse, and how environmental concern can work through the trading system to promote or frustrate development, in both rich and poor countries. This publication is a practical reference tool for policy-makers and practitioners and the clear language used allows a greater understanding by all elements of civil society.
