Summary This book explores the potential of 'smart regulation': an approach to environmental policy-making which is far more pluralistic, flexible, and imaginative than the status quo. Drawing from their studies of regulatory innovation in North America, Europe and Australia, the authors show how the design of complementary combinations of policy instruments, tailored to particular environmental goals and circumstances, will produce more effective and efficient policy outcomes than the single instrument policies currently practiced. The book should be of particular interest to regulatory theorists generally, and to environmental regulators and policy makers in particular. It will be equally important to business and environmental and public interest groups
