International Economics Consulting Ltd along with United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) have published a paper which addresses environmentally conscious trade policies for AFSIDS, within the framework of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

The paper, authored by Jaime de Melo and Henri Casela provides a dashboard of the environmental challenges across AFSIDS; reviews existing environmental trade provisions in RECs treaties; and suggests reductions in tariffs on Environmental Goods (EGs) and proposes environmental management policies.
