Adopting pollution control solutions is a complex challenge. Understanding the solutions that act as “horizontal improvers” across various industries is essential to effectively target public and private investments and improve pollution mitigation solutions in sectors that can yield the greatest benefits for the local environment and human health.
UNCTAD and Instituto 17 created an interactive dashboard which combines economic, trade and product life-cycle analysis, to provide governments and industry actors with key export pollution data for manufacturing sectors in 13 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
