International trade and the Montreal protocol by Duncan Brack( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer is one of the most effective multilateral environmental agreements currently in existence. Established to control the production and consumption of CFCs and other ozone-depleting chemicals, the Protocol is an important example of an agreement which places restrictions on international trade in the interests of the global environment - a feature which may become common in future treaties." "This report examines the development, effectiveness and future of the trade provisions of the ozone regime, concluding that they have contributed significantly to its success in attracting signatories and in limiting ozone depletion. Issues considered include the compatibility of the trade provisions and the GATT, trade restrictions and developing countries, and the new problems of non-compliance and illegal trade in CFCs." --Book Jacket

International trade and the Basel Convention by Jonathan Krueger( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hazardous wastes are not usually thought of as commodities traded internationally, but they are the subject of one of the most important multilateral agreements linking trade and the environment. The Basel Convention on the Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal is a key environmental treaty." "This volume examines the development, effectiveness and future of the Convention, especially its provisions for restricting trade. It analyses the compatibility between the trade provisions and the World Trade Organization, discusses the special concerns of developing countries and describes the illegal trade in hazardous wastes. It suggests ways forward for the Convention, and draws lessons from the Basel experience for other multilateral environmental agreements." --Book Jacket

Energy exporters and climate change by Peter Kassler( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Policies to tackle climate change agreed at Kyoto and beyond will influence global energy choices, away from carbon-rich fossil fuels, and eventually towards renewable energy sources. This book suggests that the change process will take many years, and that it can be managed in other ways. In the short term, climate policies favour fuel shifts along a chain from coal to oil to natural gas. In the longer term they should encourage investment in low-emission industries, including in energy-exporting countries. The study proposes some new patterns of international cooperation, including emissions trading and the transfer of 'green' technologies." "The book should be read by energy-industry executives and policy analysts concerned with fossil fuels and renewables, and by those interested in the international politics of climate change and the environment." --Book Jacket

The new geopolitics of energy by John V Mitchell( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This path-breaking study attempts to define a new international dimension to energy policy that takes account of the dramatic political changes since the oil crises of the 1970s. This 'new geopolitics of energy' is creative rather than defensive, aligned to market-oriented development rather than state management. But governments have a role in promoting stable international conditions for trade and investment in energy, which in turn contribute to wider political stability; the development of more widely acceptable options for nuclear power; coordinated international action to mitigate the risks of climate change and other environmental impacts. This book is invaluable reading for executives and analysts in the energy business, and for strategic thinkers who believe that broader policies should in keeping with current energy trends
