"Moving forward from Cancún"

Conference on the Global Governance of Trade, Environment and Sustainable Development

30-31 October 2003, Berlin



Background information

Ecologic is a partner in the international research project Concerted Action on Trade and Enviornment (CAT+E), funded by the European Commission.

Following conclusion of the Uruguay Round the agenda of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) the trade and environment policy and research agendas have grown rapidly in recent years. This expansion created a major area of research that is attracting researchers in virtually all EU Member States. CAT+E aims to ensure debate and co-ordination between European research centres and to draw new participants into the process.

Structured around a series of substantive questions in the area of trade and environment CAT+E seeks:

  • To foster an in-depth debate on the broad range of issues arising in the trade and environment agenda involving policy makers, other stakeholders and researchers.
  • To hold annual members' meetings and conferences for three years to develop and focus research in the trade and environment agenda. The first of these conferences will be the Conference “Moving forward from Cancún” on 30-31 October 2003 in Berlin.
  • To promote EU research leadership and improvement of research net-working and capacity building between EU countries.
