Policy Tools and Evaluation

Various instruments of environmental policy are used to achieve state goals of the environmental protection. The traditional division is on administrative and market-based (economic) instruments and their advantages versus disadvantages are widely discussed. The performance of different policy tools is evaluated with the use of ex-post analysis. Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) is used to verify the effectiveness of state interventions.

Since 1997 the IEEP has systematically focused on ex-post analysis of regulatory instrument of the environmental policy (especially fees, taxes and tradable emissions). From 2007, it also undertakes RIA assessments.
