Sections 19.2 and 19.3 draw most heavily on the TAR. Examples can be found in the region and sector chapters of this report; the sections in this chapter do not introduce new information. Instead, they synthesize that information in ways that the other chapters are unable to because they do not examine all regions and sectors.
