          This paper briefly refers to the essential elements underlying the theoretical linkages between trade, economic development, and climate change, and reviews the analytical tools which are used to describe these linkages. The author looks specifically at a particular type of analytical tool called computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, and considers their strengths and limitations when used as a tool for the analysis of these trade and climate change linkages. The paper finds that the tool have been more useful than ‘misused’, and this explains for the popularity of its use in the past.
