The TSD should thus include: a. Overview of the state of play in progress towards negotiation of a multilateral framework on investment, and interests and proposals in this context; b. Studies in selected Asian countries of the impact of FDI on human development and the contribution of national investment policies to this objective, including in-depth examination of the incidence of specific measures such as performance requirements, subsidies, etc; c. Studies of the operation and impact of Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) on the implementation of such policies; d. Identification of the main actors in civil society involved in protecting the poorer and more vulnerable segments of the population from environmental degradation in the countries examined; e.

Suggestions for actions at the domestic level supportive of the above.
