Title: New style charging schemes for discharges and abstractions (Note 16)
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The NRA commissioned this report to examine the arguments for the use of economic instruments, such as tradeable permits or incentive charges, in the regulation of abstractions to and discharges from controlled waters. The report's key objectives are: to identify the principles which should underlie the use of economic instruments; and to examine the alternative uses of any excess revenue raised b y economic instruments. The report provides a self-contained reference on the principles and issues associated with the use of economic instruments, and it focuses on economic principles.
