About the product

Growing international trade has made the economies of nations inter-dependent and this has had, among other things, implications for environmental policy. Global Product Chains is a helpful instrument for policy makers to better understand the environmentally relevant actors in the economy and how they interact. The publication includes comprehensive case studies selected with a view to product types, environmental impact, and geographical distribution: semiconductors from the Philippines, Pakistan environmental impact of cotton production and trade, copper from Zambia and the case of ecotourism in Costa Rica.
