Greening trade policies in African Small Islands Developing States (AFSIDS). Suggestions for the Way Forward under the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)

This paper suggests trade policies for AFSIDS that will help them build workable and effective trade regimes to protect their environment. The paper makes three contributions: (i) provides a dashboard of the environmental challenges across AFSIDS; (ii) reviews existing environmental trade provisions in RECs treaties, iii) suggests reductions in tariffs on Environmental Goods (EGs), like electric equipment and machinery needed for environmental management.
