Dr. Sikina Jinnah is Associate Professor of Politics at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Andrew Carnegie Fellow 2017. His research priorities focus on changing power and influence in global environmental policy, particularly in the areas of climate change, climate technology and the link between international trade and environmental policy. His first book (“Post-treaty Politics: Secretariat Influence in Global Environmental Governance,” MIT Press 2014) was awarded the 2016 Harold and Margaret Sprout Award for Best International Environmental Book by the International Studies Association.

The German Institute for Development Policy (DIE) is one of the world`s leading think tanks for global development and international cooperation. The Klimalog project aims to better link global climate and development policies to national political and economic realities. This means raising awareness of the links between climate and development policies and promoting targeted dialogue between relevant actors in the political, scientific, civil society and private sectors. The Canada Research Chair in International Political Economy, led by Jean-Frédéric Morin (Laval University), is contributing to a better understanding of globalization through innovative research projects and the training of promising new researchers. Launched in October 2014, it examines the interactions between international trade, environmental protection, foreign investment and intellectual property. The innovative and interactive online trend analytics tool, based on the Trade and Environment (TREND) database, which traces nearly 300 different environmental provisions in the texts of approximately 630 PTAs, offers new ways to go further and conduct research to provide detailed information on the interaction between trade and the environment and to provide a new insight into a series of relevant policy discussions. This briefing paper summarizes the latest research findings on the basis of TREND and provides a new overview of these issues and political discussions at the interface of international trade and the environment. Second, it is necessary to understand the interaction between the PTA and other environmental or climate agreements.
To what extent do THE PTAs serve the objectives of the Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEA) or the Paris Agreement on Climate Change? Trend analytics focuses on bilateral and regional EDPs. It is unique because it does not only offer a prospect of adopting environmental rules through trade agreement. It also offers several opportunities to increase the wide variety of environmental provisions over time. Change the period on the timeline under the map.
