Externally funded project

Innovative approaches to improve the incentives of environmental instruments, Part I: State of the art (INCENT I)

This research project will investigate if and how concepts of behavioural economics can be used for assessing instruments of environmental policy. This is meant as a substitute for assessing those instruments by referring to the concept of homo oeconomicus. To a part the research task is to systematize the given attempts to introduce insights of behavioural economics into the issues of environmental policy. Additionally, recent and former developments in behavioural economics not yet linked to environmental problems will be taken into consideration.
