Summary "This book explains the role and limitations of liberalized international trade vis-a-vis the global environment and sustainable development. A distinguishing feature of this book is its integration of trade, environment and development perspectives for operationally meaningful policy purposes. The main issues considered include analysis of the global trade regimes, interrelationships with existing multilateral environmental agreements, institutional mechanisms governed by the World Trade Organization, and a framework for pragmatic reforms."--BOOK JACKET
