Currently, the intensifying impacts of climate change are influencing many regions of the world. Climate change calls for multilateral cooperation, collective solutions and actions in line with wider initiatives for economic growth, carbon neutrality and sustainable development. The interaction between agricultural trade and environmental sustainability is gaining global importance following the Paris Agreement and in order to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals. On the one hand, agricultural trade may cause environmental degradation via land-use change, deforestation, fertilizer use and production. On the other hand, it can also contribute to sustainability by spreading environmentally friendly, low-carbon technologies. Therefore, research in agricultural trade needs to focus on sustainable practices, environmental regulation in trade policy and solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change. International trade plays a crucial role in the transition to a low-carbon economy and a greener, more sustainable production system.
This Special Issue aims to discover the linkage between agricultural trade policy and environmental sustainability to provide pathways for the transition to more sustainable agricultural trade. The results and findings derived from the articles of this Special Issue will be beneficial for agricultural or trade policymakers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollution.
