Main Information
Title OECD 1998 Improving The Environment through Reducing Subsidies - Part I, Part II + Part III
Description The publication summarises the results of an OECD study on how economic support measures actually affect the economy and, as a result, the environment. The study finds that releasing market forces through support removal and increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of regulations can lead to significant environmental benefits even though the effects of a given support measure on the environment will be determined by many different factors. The study also offers recommendations to implementing reductions in environmentally-harmful subsidies.
