Greening Trade and Investment: Environmental Protection Without Protectionism
The book explains clearly how liberalization of international trade and investment can go
hand in hand with an environmental protection which does not erect damaging protectionist
barriers that frustrate the development aspirations of poorer countries. It offers constructive
solutions to one of the most important and difficult issues in international economic policy.
