A new report by E3G and published by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung USA explores the interconnectivity of three distinct policy areas: climate, trade and development. Critical components of the discussion are how trade can play an essential part in addressing the larger challenge of climate change and its impact on developing countries.
The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and E3G invite you to join this online discussion. Experts will provide their perspectives on the report’s findings. Emphasis is on the relevance of transatlantic cooperation for finding and promoting answers to the climate-trade-development nexus. Other aspects on the agenda are the current geopolitical landscape and actionable pathways towards a climate- and development-aligned trade regime. The experts will also present national and international solutions to carbon leakage while promoting climate-friendly trade policies.
Paul Linnarz, Director, KAS Office USA
