International Experiences with Economic Incentives for Protecting the Environment

This report reviews experiences outside the United States with economic instruments for managing the environment, including air and water quality, water quantity, solid and hazardous wastes. It represents an update and extension of one chapter in the 1997 report by Anderson and Lohof which found widespread use of economic instruments for managing the environment, including some applications not observed in the United States. The current report identifies new instruments, more widespread application of older instruments, and greater acceptance of incentive-based mechanisms in environmental management.
