31. With a view to enhancing the mutual supportiveness of trade and environment, we agree to negotiations, without prejudging their outcome, on:
(i) the relationship between existing WTO rules and specific trade obligations set out in multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). The negotiations shall be limited in scope to the applicability of such existing WTO rules as among parties to the MEA in question. The negotiations shall not prejudice the WTO rights of any Member that is not a party to the MEA in question;What is the Doha Mandate on MEAs?
The Shrimp case did environmental protection?not clarify what the relationship with MEAs are in general
The Shrimp case was not a case that involved a STO
The vast majority of trade measures do not arise out of STOs!
Specific Trade Obligations in MEAs:
Nobody really agrees on what that means
Members agree that thus far there have not been any problemsShrimp and MEAs
