Office/Remote Location: Auditorium
Brookings Mountain West presents "Climate Change and International Trade: Conflict or Opportunity?" a talk by Joshua Meltzer, Fellow, Global Economy and Development.
How can international trade negotiations provide incentives or limit progress on domestic and international climate change policy? This presentation will explore how trade negotiations can reduce trade barriers to low carbon produced goods, the implications of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and free trade agreements, and how pricing carbon to reduce greenhouse gas emissions can lead to international competitiveness and carbon leakage concerns. This presentation will consider the implications of the November 6th election on short and long-term climate policy initiatives.
Joshua Meltzer is a fellow in the Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution. He is an expert on the intersection between climate change and international trade and the relationship between trade and U.S. competitiveness—particularly with regard to U.S. trade with key economies such as China, India, Japan and the European Union. His research interests also include a range of issues related to the World Trade Organization and free trade agreements, such as the treatment and promotion of trade in energy.
Lectures are free and open to the public. No reservation or ticket required.
