About the product

Vehicle emissions are linked to a number of health issues. In countries where leaded gasoline is used, vehicle emissions are also a major source of airborne lead. Globally, there is a tendency for older, polluting vehicles to be exported to developing countries and countries in transition, where their use poses a particular challenge for policy makers. This publication offers policy makers the opportunity to compare the strategies and experiences of other countries in their efforts to control automotive emissions and reduce the health hazard.
