Summary: This Discussion paper attempts to increase the level and scope of knowledge about the nexus between trade liberalization, and local and global environmental quality. Several chapters address these linkages, including the environmental and health effects of trade liberalization and consequent economic growth, the possible inverted U-shaped relationship between growth and emissions, and the effects of trade distortions and environmental policies on environmental damage from sectors such as horticulture and forestry. The chapters contribute to knowledge in three broad areas: the environmental effects of trade liberalization and growth, the "pollution-haven" hypothesis, and economic instruments for global environmental problems.
