Trade and Climate Change Policy beyond 2015

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Sep 30, 2015 | U.N. Conference on Trade and Development

There is a unique opportunity in 2015 for the international community to craft a global agenda for sustainable development that is people-centered, economically and environmentally sustainable, development- oriented, and resilient to the effects of climate change. The agenda should generate transformation of the global economy towards low-carbon, resource-efficient and socially-inclusive development. In this policy brief, the U.N. Conference on Trade and Development suggests that the relationship between climate change and trade policies should change so that climate change policies with economic and trade aspects, and trade policies with environmental and climate change implications are considered, regulated and implemented so as to be mutually supportive in the post-2015 period.
