This work focuses on how economics can contribute to the design, implementation and appraisal of legal systems that create the ""right"" incentives for environmental protection. The 16 original and specially commissioned contributions - written by some of the leading names in their field - span many of the important areas of contemporary interest and employ case-study material combined with theoretical, empirical and experimental research.
