Feed-in Tariff Programs and the WTO

A new paper released by the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD) examines the local content regulations of the FIT programmes implemented by Ontario, Germany and the United Kingdom in the context of the World Trade Organization subsidy rules. The Ontario cases are the first WTO disputes related to climate change, and are being watched for their ramifications for all future climate-change related trade disputes.
