This book deepens our understanding of environmental sustainability in a context of economic growth, putting sustainable development firmly back on the agenda.

It challenges the view that environmental degradation is the result of too rapid economic growth in the developing world. 

The book provides an analytical and updated review of the literature on trade and the environment, political economy, poverty, and it seeks to broaden the debate on sustainable development and incorporate new options in the policy dialogue.
