The introduction highlights the major concerns of the book, focusing on ensuring that the priorities of developing countries are addressed.

This publication is comprised of two volumes.



The EPAs and Sustainable Development: Benchmarks for Pro-Development Monitoring of the Negotiations

The African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries are facing trade negotiations on several fronts simultaneously over the next few years. These include the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Union (EU) under the Cotonou Agreement, the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization (WTO) launched in 2001, and negotiations within economic groupings in their own regions. A clear and positive link between development strategies and the new trade rules to be generated by these negotiations has still to be developed and articulated in practical terms.
