Abstract: 

While some argue that trade liberalization has raised incomes and led to environmental protection in developing countries, others claim that it generates neither poverty reduction nor sustainability. The detailed case studies in this book demonstrate that neither interpretation is correct, given how much depends on specific policies and institutions that determine ‘on-the-ground’ outcomes. Drawn from research around the developing world, the authors present the unique perspectives of both the world’s largest development organization (The World Bank) and the world’s largest conservation organization (The World Wildlife Federation) on the debate over trade liberalization and its effects on poverty and the environment.
