Trade and Environment: Difficult Policy Choices at the Interface
International trade and environmental protection are issues that continually arise on the global policy agenda. This book seeks to clarify the issues, detailing how trade impacts on the environment, and the effects that environmental concerns can have on trade. The authors demonstrate that it is in the interest of Third World countries to take environmental concerns seriously - to protect their resources and also gain greater access to Northern markets. Several strategies and policies are examined, including greener, cleaner production processes and setting ISO 14000-compatible environmental standards.
