Greening taxes and subsidies in the Pacific islands (IEEP)

This report presents information on existing instruments and reform efforts of relevance for greening taxes and subsidies in the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs). A particular focus is placed on three of the PICTs involved in the RESCCUE project (Restoration of Ecosystem Services and Adaptation to Climate Change), namely Vanuatu, Fiji and French Polynesia, although interesting examples from many other PICTs are also included. Nine specific economic sectors are addressed: mining, fisheries, agriculture, transport, waste management, water management, urban development, tourism and energy. The report is not intended to be an exhaustive regional review, but rather to present illustrative examples of instruments from each of the economic sectors. The report is available to download on the IEEP website.
