Abstract

This thesis argues that the environmental law principle of common but differentiated responsibilities should be part of the World Trade Organisation's renewable energy jurisprudence. A teleological interpretation of the covered Agreements can integrate the principle or its essence into the World Trade Organisation's renewable energy jurisprudence. This would result in synergistic application of international trade law and international environmental law. This would prevent the jeopardization of climate change mitigation initiatives in developing countries. The extant decisions of the World Trade Organisation dispute bodies will militate against the promulgation or implementation of climate conducive policy instruments in developing countries.
