BRIEF November 28, 2017

International Cooperation and Global Public Goods

This theme addresses the political economy, policy design and evaluation challenges that arise in international cooperation: regional and multilateral trade, climate change and environmental security, international coordination of macroeconomic and financial policies, communicable diseases, deforestation, biodiversity, knowledge and intellectual property rights, health, and education.

A number of completed projects are on trade (Mega-Regional Trade Agreements: Implications for Developing Countries, and Trade Policy, Poverty and Shared Prosperity), climate change (China Climate Policy Modeling), and migration (Migration and Labor Market Implications in the South). These projects addressed policy-oriented questions in a timely manner. The findings are expected to provide more useful policy implications to governments in developing countries.
