Used Vehicles and the Environment: A Global Overview of Used Light Duty Vehicles - Flow, Scale and Regulation

United Nations Environment Programme (2020)

This report is a first attempt at gathering, analysing, and presenting an overview of the global trade in used vehicles for the purpose of environmental policymaking. This includes information on the supply chains, scale and the physical ‘flows’ in trade from exporting markets to importing markets. The direction of this trade is usually from higher-income to lower income, developing markets that are motorizing rapidly. This report also details and evaluates the national and (sub)regional regulatory environments and policy measures that seek to control the trade in used vehicles.
