Surname 1Student’s NameLecturer’s NameCourseDateImpacts of International Trade on Environmental DevelopmentInternational trade has been one of the significant topics of discussion over the past fewyears. Unlike traditional forms of conducting business, currently, people can walk into a localstore and purchase products from different parts of the world.Currently, financial institutions,consumers, governments and businesses have realised that one of the significant factors leadingto developments is not only focusing on local production but also putting into considerationsissues that might be trending around the world. Additionally, international trade has been ameans of improving the quality of products produced locally, as they face competition fromthose coming from different countries.The following document will provide an annotatedbibliography on some of the documents discussing the impacts of international trade on theenvironment.Food and Agriculture Organisation. 2019. "International Trade, The Environment AndSustainable Agricultural Development".Fao.Org..The document was prepared by an organisation known as the Food and AgriculturalOrganization (FOA).
Surname 2The document was primarily discussing the impacts of international agricultural trade onthe environment.One of the issues the organisation has addressed through the document is the impact ofinternational trade on deforestation.The authors have indicated that after the introduction of trade liberation, the internationalcommunity argues that it has led to increased deforestation activities as timber has beenon high demands in different parts of the world.The authors have provided different countries that have introduced injunctions banninginternational trade of timber products.One of the examples of countries indicted in thedocument includes Germany.The authors have indicated that Despite the introduction of the ban of a timber sale, it hasbeen inefficient since the international trade of wood has been on the rise.The authors have indicated different reasons some countries have been ignoring theinjunctions. Some of the ideas include; First recent studies have insisted that internationaltrade of timber products have fewer effects on deforestation, encouraging people tocontinue with the practice (Food and Agriculture Organisation). Secondly, mostGovernments and institutions have the notion that there is a clearance of tropical forestsfor agricultural use, which leads to most of the wood being consumed domestically asfirewood and only a small percentage is used for export purposes. Finally, ignorance inexporting timber has been as a result of economists introducing a notion that even if thereis the lifting of the ban against transporting timber products for purposes of protecting theenvironment, might not be productive since it leads to severe economic andenvironmental costs.
