Bringing Energy Subsidies to the WTO - An IISD workshop


It has long been said that, if the Doha Round is centered on agriculture, the next round will centre on energy.  Within this complex set of issues, international attention both inside and outside the WTO is already beginning to focus on public support to energy, including the recent cases disputing government support to renewable energy.  

This IISD-GSI workshop will examine how best the entry of energy subsidies to the WTO might be prepared. ENTWINED researcher Robert Wolfe from IISD will speak on the subject of an alternative approach through increased transparency: IISD-GSI proposal for third-party notification of energy and fossil-fuel subsidies

Date: September 30th
