Volume VI in the Critical Issues in Environmental Taxation series contains an interdisciplinary, selection of peer-reviewed papers written by international experts in the field. The volume contains nearly forty articles written by authors representing disciplines such as law, economics, accounting, taxation, environmental policy and political sciences. The articles were selected from papers presented at the Eighth Annual Global Conference on Environmental Taxation in October 2007 in Munich, Germany. The book is clearly structured with the articles divided into parts and organised by topic. Part 1 it features analysis of the effect of environmental tax policies on innovation, technology, and competitiveness, Part 2 on implementation issues, Part 3 on issues relating to energy and innovation, Part 4 on land use, planning, and conservation and Part 5 closes with papers dealing with international approaches to environmental taxation that use market-based instruments. The book and its sister volumes in the series are a unique and invaluable resource for anyone interested in the next generation of policy instruments for transitioning to sustainable economies.
