Environment and Trade: A Handbook
United Nations Environment Programme, International Institute for Sustainable Development

The handbook has been developed to highlight the relationship between envi- ronment and trade. The primary aim is to foster a broader understanding of these interlinkages to enable governments to develop practical approaches to integrating these policies. It is possible, but by no means automatic, that trade and environmental policies should support each other in achieving their obiec- tives. Close integration of these policies is necessary to maximize the benefIts that trade can bring to increase human welfare and economic development more sustainably.

Action on ozone 2000
United Nations Environment Programme

This is the fourth edition of Action on Ozone produced by UNEP. The scientific evidence clearly shows the beginnings of a fall in the concentrations of the dangerous chemicals in the lower atmosphere which is now being translated into a similar fall in the stratosphere, where the ozone is destroyed. The ozone layer is predicted to start to recover in the next one or two decades, and should be restored to full health by the middle of the new century.
