As nanotechnology is an emerging field and most of its applications are still speculative, there is a lot of  debates about what positive and negative effects that nanotechnology might have.

Protection of the environment, human health and worker safety in developing countries often suffers from a combination of factors that can include but are not limited to lack of robust environmental, human health, and worker safety regulations; poorly or unenforced regulation which is linked to a lack of physical and human capacity . Often, these nations require assistance, particularly financial assistance, to develop the scientific and institutional capacity to adequately assess and manage risks, including the necessary infrastructure such as laboratories and technology for detection.

Hence, Nanotechnology has both good and bad impacts to the environment.
