Environmental Taxes in an Enlarged Europe

An analysis and database of environmental taxes and charges in Central and Eastern Europe

October 2001 | Print | Book

This report presents the results of studies undertaken in 15 countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) under the Sofia Initiative on Economic Instruments. It provides a detailed analysis of the role of economic instruments in the EU accession process. The report stresses that more attention should be given to opportunities to introduce more incentive-based instruments, reducing the need for costly end-of-pipe solutions later. The conclusions presented in the report can be useful in developing sound environmental and development policies.
