Summary This timely book provides a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of emissions trading including the lessons learnt, the problems faced and the prospects for its extended use. It includes case studies of trading schemes in the USA and Europe, and studies of international trading under the European acid rain regime. Problems of practical implementation, especially institutional feasibility and political acceptability, are given particular attention. The prospects for the international trading of greenhouse gases following the Kyoto Protocol are assessed, together with the potential conflict between emissions trading and established regulatory traditions. Pollution for Sale will be of great interest to policy makers, practitioners, researchers and students of environmental policy
Notes "This book has been developed from the proceedings of a workshop on "Tradable Permits, Tradable Quotas and Joint Implementation", held at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex in April 1997." _ p.xvii
