Trade and Climate: a negotiating agenda for the WTO?

Date: 26 Oct 2022 6:30 pm — 8:00 pm
Speaker(s): Ignacio Garcia Bercero
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building, LSE

After striking a deal on fisheries subsidies, could trade and climate be the next negotiating challenge for the WTO?

The talk will discuss issues for a potential trade and climate negotiating agenda such as subsidies, liberalisation of goods and services with a positive climate impact, standards for measuring carbon intensity or the role of border carbon measures. It will look into the potential of tackling those issues in a WTO context either multilaterally or through open plurilateral approaches.
