Centre for International Governance Innovation  
19. July 2019

The rules-based framework, as instantiated in rules established under the World Trade Organization (WTO), is not equipped to address the issues that are emerging under the technological conditions generated by the digital transformation. The emerging knowledge-based and data-driven economy features incentives for strategic trade and investment policy and a confluence of factors contributing to market failure at a global scale; digital social media and platform business models have raised concerns with calls for regulation affecting cross-border data flows; and newfound security…

IISD  
Policy Initiative: Climate Action

Handbook of Green Finance: Energy Security and Sustainable Development

Asian Development Bank Institute  
Policy Initiative: Sustainable Finance

Clearly, fossil fuels still dominate energy investments, particularly as several developed and developing economies are still following pro-coal energy policies. The extra CO2 generated from new coal-fired power plants could more than eliminate any reductions in emissions made by other nations. Finance is the engine for developing infrastructural projects, including energy projects. By providing several thematic and country chapters, this…
