OECD/EEA launch new database on economic instruments used in environmental policy
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the European Environment Agency have developed a database which will help governments choose a mix of economic instruments and voluntary approaches for environmental protection. These new tools play an increasingly important role in many countries, supplementing or replacing various types of regulatory instruments. The database is now freely available to policy makers, researchers and the public.
