Environment and trade: a handbook

This handbook published by the United Nations Environment Program and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) in 2006 explains how trade can affect the environment, both positively and negatively, and how environmental concern can work through the trading system to foster or hinder development in both rich and poor countries. The publication is addressed to those who have some knowledge about trade, environment or development, but who are not expert on the intersection of the three. It should serve as a practical reference tool for policy-makers and practitioners, and be equally useful to the media and civil society. With this in mind, the handbook uses clear language and a minimum of jargon to foster a greater understanding by all segments of the public. http://topics.developmentgateway.org/trade/highlights/viewHighlight.do~activeHighlightId=111966?intcmp=925
