Environment and Trade: A Handbook

United Nations Environment Programme ; International Institute for Sustainable Development (2000)

The handbook has been developed to highlight the relationship between envi- ronment and trade. The primary aim is to foster a broader understanding of these interlinkages to enable governments to develop practical approaches to integrating these policies. It is possible, but by no means automatic, that trade and environmental policies should support each other in achieving their obiec- tives. Close integration of these policies is necessary to maximize the benefIts that trade can bring to increase human welfare and economic development more sustainably.
