Market Mechanisms and Incentives: Applications to Environmental Policy

EPA's National Center for Environmental Research (NCER) and National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE) sponsored a one-day workshop to discuss research being conducted on market mechanisms and incentives. The workshop consisted of a series of presentations and discussions by researchers from the NCER Science To Achieve Results (STAR) grant program, NCEE, other EPA offices, and universities. There were presentations on the use of market mechanisms and incentives in the areas of fuel economy, water quality, land use and the distributional consequences of using market incentives. There was also a panel discussion on the role of market mechanisms and incentives to climate change.
