Manuals and Policy Tools

Manuals and policy tools developed by the Branch aim to assist negotiators, policy-makers and practitioners in assessing the environmental impacts of macro-economic policies, including trade and trade related policies against widely accepted sustainable development criteria.

Developed manuals and policy tools enhance desicion makers' understanding of the potential environmental and socio-economic impacts of their policies and the development of policy response packages to avoid or integrate negative impacts and enhance positive ones.
