Workshop Report: How to Bring Fossil-Fuel Subsidies to the WTO?

Summary:

Participants in a workshop organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) in Geneva on September 30, 2013, agreed that notification of fossil-fuel subsidies to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) by non-governmental organizations has the potential to enhance understanding of the extent of such subsidies and the reasons for their use. A background paper on that proposal will be released by IISD in the near future. This note reports on the main points that emerged at the workshop.
