The Trade and Development Review focuses on themes that are of particular interest to developing countries. In doing so it provides a forum for dialogue aimed at assisting developing countries in shaping their specific interest in the international trade and environment debate. The issues discussed in this publication are; trade obligations in multilateral environmental agreements, environmental goods and services, World Trade Organization and technical capacity building.




The Doha Ministerial Declaration, and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation adopted by the World Summit on Sustainable Development, reiterated the major role that trade can play in achieving sustainable development and reducing poverty. At the same time, there has been growing recognition, including in the context of preparations for UNCTAD XI, of the need to integrate environmental and social aspects into development strategies.
