Delivering Climate Action through Trade: The Environmental Goods Agreements and Beyond

Organizer: ICTSD

Date: Mon / Dec. 7 - 14:30

Time: 14:30

Area: Blue Zone

A unique trade agreement, the Environmental Goods Agreement (EGA), is being negotiated between more than 40 countries, including many of the world’s largest producers of clean energy technologies. The deal will result in improved global access to cheaper, more competitive climate relevant technologies worldwide, and therefore contribute to climate action. This session will provide an overview and analysis of the climate-relevance of the EGA, and place it in the broader context of the possible role of trade in responding to the challenges of climate change.
