Focusing on the likely impacts on trade of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol, this book examines the actual and potential conflicts between whether liberalization of trade undermines the efforts of industrialised countries to mitigate climate change. It will be essential reading for environmental economists and those engaged in international environmental relations and policy.
