Summary

There is now key empirical evidence of the power of economic instruments in managing the environment. This volume, the companion to Environmental Valuation, presents the results of a three-year collaborative effort involving research institutions in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Authoritative case studies demonstrate the diversity of environmental problems to which a variety of economic instruments can be applied - air and water pollution, packaging, deforestation, over-grazing, wildlife. They also show what is needed for them to work successfully and the pitfalls to avoid in introducing them, providing valuable guidance for future applications. Written to be accessible to non-economists, this book offers unrivalled source material for students and academic economists as well as for professionals working with economic instruments. Published in association with the United Nations Environment Programme
