Integrated assessment of trade liberalization and trade-related policies: a country study on the Ecuador banana sector
United Nations Environment Programme

The international trade in bananas is one of the most import economic activities for Ecuador, and is very significant in terms of labour and use of natural resources. Given that bananas have become one of the most controversial commodities within the multilateral trade system in recent years, Ecuadorian policy making and current and future negotiations must focus on achieving better conditions for the Ecuadorian people.

Forests in sustainable development: a quick report card on progress since RIO
United Nations Environment Programme

Initiatives that treat forestry as a "sector" seem to be increasingly prone to failure. Forests are resources that other sectors use, in many different and often competing ways, to produce both public and private goods and services. The results of this use can vary widely in their contribution to sustainable development, from forest asset liquidation (land clearance for agriculture and infrastructure), to direct productive uses (plantation and natural forest management), to protective uses (wildlife conservation and water supply).

Handbook on methyl bromide data reporting under the Montreal Protocol
United Nations Environment Programme

This handbook is designed to further assist countries to provide quality data reporting on methyl bromide consumption and production, as required under Article 7 of the Montreal Protocol, as differentiation between quarantine and pre-shipment (QPS) and non-QPS uses, poses a particular challenge to Parties. UNEP DTIE OzonAction Programme has developed a handbook, which provides key methyl bromide data reporting information and guidance, in a simple and user-friendly way. Financing came from the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol, with input from the Ozone Secretariat, the Multilateral Fund Secretariat, national ozone officers and methyl bromide experts from the public and private sectors in developed and developing countries.
