Summary presentation from OECD-funded project to identify and profile examples of monitoring & compliance programs involving imports of environmental goods & services.

Project Summary:

  • Monitoring & compliance programs are undeveloped and require technology and assistance in set-up and operation
  • Trade barriers are not insurmountable, but most projects are test projects allowing special considerations for imports
  • Use of technology, experience of project managers and resulting information flow to agencies and the public inspires program managers that compliance objectives can be enforceable and attainable, and creates pressure for administrations to launch enforcement initiatives.

Projects demonstrate capacity building in technical ability to collect & analyze monitoring data (see presentation file)
