About the product

In 1989, environmental concerns led to the adoption of the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal. This publication outlines some of the facts about the international hazardous waste trade, addresses the issue in the context of sustainable industrial activity in all countries. It also discusses the Basel Convention and looks at some aspects of the reconciliation of environmental and trade objectives in the regulation of the international hazardous waste trade.
