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