Abstract

In 1999 the EC launched its Sustainability Impact Assessment Programme, which had as its goal the integration of sustainability concerns into the development of trade policy. It was to include the development of a methodological framework by the University of Manchester (IDPM) for assessing the sustainability impact of trade agreements, while the subsequent studies were to inform the negotiations and the dialogue with civil society. The first application of this new approach was to be the negotiations being undertaken under the 'Doha Round' of the WTO. This paper will draw upon this methodology and consider its application in a SIA of the current EPA negotiations in the Pacific region of the ACP.
