Bina Nazar, SDPI 1995 Abstract This paper surveys recent trends in the international waste trade, and looks at the national and international policy options southern countries like Pakistan have to employ in order to protect themselves from the harmful effects of toxic waste. The writer suggests that Pakistan should formulate its own system of monitoring and enforcement which should involve both governmental and non-governmental institutions. International environmental treaties and public pressure can also be used effectively against countries that allow the export of hazardous waste.
