Handcuffed by our trade agreements!? A webinar with Jane Kelsey
"The international community is falling far short of the Paris goals, with no credible pathway to 1.5°C in place. Only an urgent system-wide transformation can avoid climate disaster." UNEP, October 2022.
How much is Aotearoa handcuffed in taking climate action by our trade agreements?
In this webinar Prof. Jane Kelsey looks at the Trojan Horse of the international trade and investment agreements covering climate and environment, and how these perpetuate harm, promote market solutions, empower polluters and handcuff effective action.
