Effects of trade liberalization on agriculture in Lebanon
With the increased implementation of trade liberalization agreements throughout the world, the issue of trade and Environment has become a growing concern for almost all countries. Developing countries in particular have to realize that trade promotion and environmental protection are both essential pillars of sustainable development. In Lebanon, various policies and measures to reduce impact on the environment have materialized or are in the process of being developed. Among these policies is phasing out of methyl bromide. The project supported by UNEP examined the impact of trade liberalization on selected agriculture crops and the cost and benefits of phasing out methyl bromide in Lebanon.
