Strategic trade atlas: country-based views is a 2016 report by the European Union.

A Strategic Trade Atlas was developed to promote understanding of global trade flows of strategic goods, i.e., goods of military strategic value, including dual-use goods which can contribute to development of weapons of mass destruction.

This atlas provides macroscopic graphical representations of global trade flows classified under Harmonized System (HS) codes associated (by the World Customs Organization) with strategic commodities.

The cost of air pollution in Africa is a 2016 report by the OECD.

This paper is a first attempt at calculating the cost of air pollution in Africa. More precisely, it is a calculation of the major part of this cost: namely, the cost of premature deaths attributable to air pollution. It draws on the epidemiological evidence base assembled in the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013, in order to detail results for the health impacts of air pollution – in absolute terms and relative to selected other major risk factors, per country and for Africa as a whole. And it draws on the economic analyses developed by the present author, among others, in recent OECD work on the value of statistical life, in order to establish results for the economic cost of the health impacts of air pollution
