Evaluation of environmental policy alternativesEconomic evaluation of the benefits of environmental protection measuresUploaded: 1 of March, 2015

The goal of this research was the preparation of a guide for environmental policy makers based on the international literature of environmental valuation, in order to improve the efficiency of policy decisions, incorporating the monetised value of environmental change. In addition to reviewing the literature, the detailed inspection of the state of the environment in Hungary was also an important part of our analysis. As a result of the analysis, we determined the relative attractiveness of key groups of policy measures for each major environmental medium.

Special attention was paid to “no-regret” measures that can be the cornerstone of setting up environmental policy priorities, such as the reduction of the urban emissions of particulate matter and the advancement of ecosystem services.
