Trade Measures in Multilateral Environmental Agreements
| International conventions designed to combat global environmental
problems - known as Multilateral Environmental Agreements or MEAs - often use
trade measures, among other instruments. But in fact the term trade measures
covers a variety of provisions, ranging from simple reporting requirements of
transboundary movements to the use of trade sanctions imposed to change a
country's environmental behaviour.
The OECD focused on the actual experience with the use of trade measures in three universally subscribed MEAs - CITES (on endangered species), the Montreal Protocol (on ozone layer depleting substances) and the Basel Convention (on hazardous wastes). Commonalities of these case studies have been drawn together in the concluding chapter.
