The World Trade Organisation (WTO) Committee on Trade and Environment has released its programme of scheduled meetings for this year. The committee is one of the main official international bodies working to reconcile national and international environmental and trade laws. At its first meeting, scheduled for May, the committee plans to discuss issues related to "market access", including "the effect of environmental measures on market access" and the relationship between multilateral trade rules and environmental tax measures. In September, the committee will look at "interlinkages" between the multilateral environment agenda and the multilateral trade agenda, including exports of domestically prohibited goods. At a third meeting in November, the committee will look at environmental implications of trade in services.
