The exporters to Africa

European Union, Japan, and the United States exported 14 million used vehicles worldwide 40 per cent of which went to African countries. The low prices of these vehicles create high demand for them in Africa and other developing regions. Still, there is a trade-off to the low cost: They are often of poor quality and would fail roadworthiness tests in exporting countries. As a result, these vehicles contribute to air pollution and hinder efforts to combat climate change. To explore these issues in more depth, last month, the United Nations Environment Program released the report “Used Vehicles and the Environment,” which analyzes data from 146 countries that import used vehicles and calls for action to regulate the trade in used cars.
Due to the lack of solid regulations and the tremendous demand for affordable cars, imported secondhand cars in Africa are sometimes very old. They do not meet Western standards for roadworthiness. The paper examines the export of used cars from the Netherlands to Africa in 2017–2018 to understand these patterns better.
The Netherlands is a significant used-car exporter, sending 35,000 automobiles to Africa over that time, according to UNEP. The UNEP received data for its investigation from the nation’s recent examination of its used vehicle shipments to Africa.
