Trade-related measures in Egypt’s Climate Change NDC Plan and Implementation

This note maps the different trade-related response measures and policies planned under the various sectors covered in Egypt’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) submitted to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). These include energy, agriculture, tourism, and other sectors such as industry and waste. It also explores measures relating to Egypt’s intention to establish a carbon credits market. The objective is to identify and categorise response measures that interact with the world trading system and Egypt’s trade relations and identify potential areas for further development.
