Toward a Climate-Driven Trade Agenda

International trade and climate change have traditionally been considered two distinct issues for the global community to address. However, as the climate crisis gains more attention, policymakers reach deeper into their toolboxes to confront it. A better understanding of the relationship between global trade rules and climate policy is necessary to build a positive climate-driven trade agenda. This paper explores that relationship, explains its significance for policymakers, and offers actionable recommendations to lay the foundation for a climate-driven trade agenda.
