Trade Liberalisation and the Environment

Lessons Learned from Bangladesh, Chile, India, Philippines, Romania and Uganda - A Synthesis Report

Format *
Recognizing the benefits of global trade, many of the world's developing countries and countries with economies in transition, have sought to actively participate in the global trading regime. Recently, however, the undesirable effect of environmental degradation has emerged as a result of rapid increase in trade. This publication contains a review of six case studies undertaken by the United Nations Environment Programme to analyze the environmental impacts of trade liberalization on natural and environmental resources. The country studies were conducted on Bangladesh's Shrimp farming industry; Chile's mining sector; India's automotive sector; the Philippines' forestry sector; Romania's water sector and Uganda's fisheries sector.
