Trade Impact Assessment

Tourism

The Conference of the Parties (COP) requested the Executive Secretary to report on the impact of trade liberalization on the conservation and sustainable use of agricultural biological diversity in consultation with relevant bodies, such as the World Trade Organization, and to gather and incorporate data on this matter from all countries.

Further to an initial study, the Executive Secretary prepared two studies in consultation with relevant international organizations:

The Executive Secretary cooperated closely with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in implementing integrated assessments of trade-related policies and biodiversity in the agriculture sector in six African, Caribbean and Pacific countries. Funding for this initiative, which was completed in 2010, was provided by the European Union and by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). The project formed part of UNEP's longstanding work on assessing the environmental, economic and social effects of trade liberalization and other trade-related policies at the country level.
