The effect of domestic environmental policies on illegal trade
Abstract:This chapter assesses the role of domestic environmental policies on illegal trade in environmentally sensitive goods. The focus is on incentive‐based mechanisms. The first section looks at the role of property rights regimes for resource management. It is followed by a review of selected taxes and charges related to pollutants and waste. In the third and final section, the case of economic incentives targeting trade flows directly is assessed, with a case study on the timber trade.
