In this regard, International Meteorological Organization (IMO) confirmed that the average global temperature rise will be 4°C by 2060 which affects negatively the global stability, as well as making obstacles that drive to discontinuing food and water supplies at the global level. Based on the above, this study seeks to answer the following main question: What is the impact and relationship of climate change on international trade? In order to answer this question, this study aims to explain the methods and procedures taken in the General Agreements on Tariff and Trade (GATT) to face climate change; and the methods and procedures taken in the Technical Barriers to Trade and Standers (TBT). The research problem is centered in the presence of an overlap between international trade, climate change and the seriousness of the effects that occur from climate change on all aspects of life. Especially, there are direct and indirect effects of climate change on international trade due to the expansion of this trade, which leads to an increase in the emission of greenhouse gases which causes Global Warming. The importance of this research comes from the impact of climate change on the international trade. this overlap may cause conflict between climate change policies and international trade due to the increasing of this trade, which leads to an augment in the emission of greenhouse gases which causes Global Warming, the role of the global policies on climate change policies threatens to leak carbon and find a haven for pollution in developing countries, given: that there is an increase in international trade.
