"The International Toxic Wastes Trade" traces the origins and nature of hazardous waste generation and export, and provides an analysis of national and international policies affecting hazardous waste export and transportation. Additionaly, specific recommendations are offered to alleviate this serious global problem. In analyzing the problems of current and past waste practices, the volume uses five criteria: environment and development, efficiency, risk, equity, and sustainability. In formulating recommendations for future directions, it explores these factors as well as the practicality of specific policies. Considered essential are the redefinition of national sovereignty to allow for international inspection, the strengthening of international protocols and information/technology transfer mechanisms, and the creative use of liability systems. Source reduction and pollution prevention are argued to be the preferred approaches to minimizing waste. Significant infrastructure improvements in both legislative frameworks and management systems will have to accompany such changes, and are also explored. This book should be of interest to personnel dealing with hazardous waste, environmental managers and toxicologists.
