In 2006, the secretariat brought together the latest environmental developments in the various negotiating groups: agriculture, non-agricultural market access, regulation, services, trade and the environment. The aim was to help members identify and discuss problems (as provided for in paragraph 51 of the Doha Declaration). For each area, the document included a brief summary of the progress of the negotiations, sub-sections outlining environmental aspects, proposals and specific discussions on the environment, as well as the environmental benefits and the contribution that negotiations can make to sustainable development. The treaties highlight social, economic and environmental challenges and work for peaceful and inclusive societies and a clean planet for sustainable development. They cover a wide range of areas, such as the protection of human rights, including gender equality; Environmental sustainability Disarmament; The fight against terrorism; road safety. Our analysis takes into account 27 indicators, including 16 SDGs collected for countries around the world over the past 30 years. We have studied, using statistical techniques, how these values are actually correlated with significant socio-economic variables, and we have developed a business as usual scenario using a general equilibrium model to obtain projections of SDG indicators until 2030. SDG 17 offers a mandate for global partnerships and sustainable development cooperation. For the trade and environment communities, this means that governments, businesses, civil society and intergovernmental organizations must move in the same direction to take advantage of the many „win-win“ trade opportunities that can together improve countries` economies and environments. If we look at a scenario for 2030 in which countries would implement the Paris Agreement, as stated in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) to contain global warming, we can see some progress for all regions, with the exception of the Middle East and North Africa, which are not essentially affected. SDG7 Sustainable and clean energy is the second most important benefit from the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Mitigation measures lead to more intensive use of clean energy sources, a reduction in primary energy intensity and, in most regions, will not impede progress in accessing electricity.
Water use (ODD6) and the industrial sector (ODD9) will also be more sustainable in all regions, while the impact of NPNP policies on urban sustainability (ODD11) and sustainable consumption (ODD12) will appear to be more heterogeneous. It is the potential effects of economic growth and poverty reduction that make trade a powerful ally of sustainable development. The multilateral trading system is an important instrument for advancing international efforts to achieve this goal. The objective of trade liberalization and the fundamental principle of non-discrimination are a more efficient allocation of resources, which should be positive for the environment. As early as 1992, the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNC) in Rio recognized the contribution that the multilateral trading system could make to sustainable development. At that time, the system was part of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which preceded the EIEGs. The Rio Declaration stated that an open, fair and non-discriminatory multilateral trading system should make a significant contribution to national and international efforts to improve the protection and conservation of environmental resources and promote sustainable development. However, the economic SDGs show conflicting results. CO2 tax revenues will improve public accounts and debt sustainability (ODD17) in Latin and Central America, Asia and North America, but the change is not noticeable in other regions, as this indicator is not sustainable, even in the baseline scenario. Economic growth (ODD8) is slowing in the regions where
