The World Trade Organization and the Environment

By P. K. Rao | Go to book overview
pragmatic for implementation purpose. The focus of the MEAs has been both on the processes and products affecting the global environment. Some of the trade prohibitions are only partly effective (like some of the exotic bird species), and some are more effective (like the ban and phase-out of the CFCs). It is futile to expect that MEAs alone can help achieve the environmental goals agreed by the participating member countries of the Agreements. It is essential that complementary trade policies and effective measures are devised by the WTO in order to accomplish the trade and environmental objectives in an integrated manner. Also, WTO cannot be a passive spectator in devising trade rules governing, for example, harmful chemicals. Broad-based sustainable development criteria must be taken into account in these processes. If trade policies are simply to maximize trade activities, and environmental agreements are simply to enhance environmental protection and conservation, we are very likely to seek largely conflicting and incongruent policies. The judicious balancing of the policy instruments and their operational implications is to be sought via the common ground of the requirements of sustainable development. This remains the concern for the rest of the book.
