About the product

This study determines the environmental impacts of Lebanon’s trade in greenhouse agricultural products using methyl bromide and assesses the potential impacts that would result from phasing it out. Results indicate that while no single method will adequately replace use of methyl bromide, farmers were generally pleased with the results obtained with the various alternatives and are adjusting their production accordingly. A two-phase policy for a total phasing out of methyl bromide is proposed as well as recommendations to conduct further studies to analyse the effects of trade liberalization on agriculture in Lebanon.
