TERI Seminar on "Trade and Technology Dimensions of Energy Use and Climate Change"; 29th Sep

Seminar on "Trade and Technology Dimensions of Energy Use and Climate Change"

29th September 2012

Organized by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and the Asian Energy Institute (AEI)

Venue: Magnolia Hall, IHC, New Delhi

This seminar is a part of the study on "Analyzing IPR regimes and carbon based trade issues", supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

At a time when the international community is struggling to agree on a comprehensive, global effort to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, countries, primarily the developed ones, are planning to move unilaterally and explore and develop strategies that would curb local and global greenhouse gases emission. Certain strategies have important trade implications and it becomes pertinent to understand the possible consequences of such policies on global trade regime. Such measures can impose significant economic costs upon developing countries by affecting market access and reduced export revenues. This might in turn affect their ability to adopt clean energy and energy efficient technologies. The question that obviously arises is whether such carbon measures are compatible with the existing provision of WTO and the UNFCCC.
