UNITAR/WTI Course on Trade and Climate Change

This course is organized by the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and World Trade Institute (WTI) as part of their suite of joint e-Learning courses on international trade policy and regulation. The aim of the course is to explore key legal and economic issues arising from the climate change debate, including the relationship between the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement and multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) that address climate change. It will also examine the legality under international trade rules, of domestic and international trade measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and measures designed to influence the behavior of trading partners. The course will begin on 20 June, and continue until 15 July.
