This study is part of ongoing OECD work on trade in services, in co‐operation with UNCTAD, to assist WTO members manage request‐offer negotiations under the GATS. The objective is to help officials in WTO members both to gain greater insight into issues of importance in the environmental services sector and to see how they might be approached in the negotiations. The current GATS negotiations offer WTO members an opportunity to achieve greater liberalisation of environmental services, and this may lead to significant economic and environmental benefits for all countries.
