Globalization and increasing international trade are becoming a fact of life, bringing increasing tensions and conflicts over their impacts on societies, livelihoods and the environment. The impacts are felt in industrialized countries but are often most harsh in developing economies. The growing debate involves not only professional economists and lawyers, but a broad range of academic disciplines as well as civil society and citizens' groups around the world. This text presents the most important contributions to the debate, and to the understanding of how sustainable international trade could be achieved. It should provide a useful sourcebook and guide to academics, practitioners and activists involved with these issues.

Our world is shrinking fast: goods, money, microbes, pollution, people and ideas are crossing borders with growing ease. National governments are ill-suited for tackling the problems that result, from climate change, to the soaring trade in limited resource commodities like timber to the management of regional water supplies. Hilary French argues that the only long-term solution to our environmental problems is a worldwide commitment to strengthening the international treaties and institutions essential for integrating ecological considerations into the still-nascent rules of global commerce. More than 200 international environmental treaties already exist, but few of them stipulate stringent commitments and effective enforcement; and instutions such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization continue to view environmental protection as a peripheral concern. But at the same time, new communications technologies are making it possible for nongovernmental organization to mobilize powerful coalitions of private citizens to press for change, and some forward-thinking business people have begun to support environmental codes of conduct and other international standards. This work provides people concerned about the future of the planet with a clear plan of action for ensuring global environmental stability in the wake of globalization.

This volume, which brings together papers from a seminar held in Beijing in 1996, contains contributions written by Chinese participants as well as by visiting experts from the West. The different experience of the several authors is represented in the unique balance of the book: all the Chinese contributions point out the importance of the environment in economic development, expressing a determination to measure effects as a means to the successful management of natural resources. They concentrate on rather specific issues within the constraints of the prevailing economic situation, where identification and asset pricing tend to be specified by administrative norms. Several of these papers contain interesting and useful statistical information. The papers by the visiting experts also stress the importance of taking account of environmental aspects in deriving indicators relating to economic development. All the papers reveal that work in this area is still evolving very quickly, sometimes in unexpected directions. This particular juxtaposition of approaches is a valuable record of the situation at a particular point in time when concern about the environment in China is developing rapidly.

In this timely volume, an international group of economists, trade negotiators, and environmentalists brings diverse perspectives to bear on the nexus of trade and the environment. Providing a conceptual framework to help readers contextualize the debates, the contributors explore emerging political and economic connections among trade, international institutions, and the environment. They develop conceptual linkages among renewable resources, trade, and international goods, with consideration to both developed and developing economies. They then offer varying ways of measuring critical linkages, and, finally, they identify areas in need of further research. A contentious issue in international relations today is the linkage of trade and the environment. Increased interest in this subject led to an environmental side-agreement to the North American Free Trade Agreement. In addition, the incorporation of environmental concerns into international trade rules will be one of the first items of business of the new World Trade Organization. Strong concerns over the impact of environmental regulations on international competitiveness ensure the ongoing debate a place at the top of the U.S. policy agenda as well.In this timely volume, an international group of economists, trade negotiators, and environmentalists brings diverse perspectives to bear on the nexus of trade and the environment.

In recent years the relationships between trade and the environment and trade and development have become increasingly complex. The need to reconcile the competing demands of economic growth, economic development, and environmental protection has become central to the multi-lateral trade agenda. In this volume various commentators debate the role of the World Trade Organization and other institutions in addressing these challenges. The book arises from the papers presented at two High Level Symposia hosted by the World Trade Organization in March 1999, on "Trade and the Environment" and "Trade and Development". The first section of the work focuses on the relationship between trade and the environment. The issues addressed include the need for WTO members to pursue integrated trade and environmental policies in order to achieve sustainable development, ways in which the removal of trade restrictions and distortions can lead to positive environmental and development solutions, the relationship between WTO provisions and trade measures contained in environmental agreements, and the need for transparency and effective interaction between civil society and the trade community. The second section examines the growing importance of developing countries in the global trading system over the last 30 years, and the ways in which the inequalities which persist between countries may be addressed. The papers include discussion of the need for integration of the least-developed countries into the multilateral trading system, the ways in which international institutions may work together to realize the objective of development, the complex role of trade liberalization in development, and the importance of new technologies in accelerating integration between developing and developed countries.

In recent years, analysts, researchers and environmental policy makers have been faced with a serious shortage of empirical data on environmental phenomena. In fact, the information gathered by various organisations has not yet been systematically classified into a consistent system of accounts. This book presents the results of a joint research effort by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei and Italy's Central Statistical Office (ISTAT) to design a system of accounts for natural and environmental resources. The resulting environmental accounts can be integrated with the existing system of national accounts, in order to estimate the so-called 'green GDP' or 'net national product' (NNP).

The global justice movement is giving increasing voice to alternatives to globalization as presented to us by giant corporations and the "free" market. This collection brings together some of the most important themes and voices which these rapidly growing, diverse citizens' movements have expressed at the World Social Forum which gathers each year in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Their power emerges from the range of disparate activists and organizations - indigenous groups, trade unions, environmentalists, women's organizations, church groups, students - that make up the global justice movement. The challenge is how to articulate their different agendas into a shared set of proposals for the creation of alternative social models to neoliberal globalization. This book assembles some of the most cogent and constructive thinking around the main issues: how to produce wealth and manage economies in the interests of people; social justice; environmental sustainability; affirmation of civil society and public space; democracy and ethical political action.
