AT THE REGIONAL LEVEL
Launched in partnership with the Biodiversity Convention Secretariat during the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress in Hawaii, this regional activity was carried out by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) with partners. It concluded with a final report which includes a focus on Fiji, French Polynesia and Vanuatu.
The final report reviews nine economic sectors: mining, fisheries, agriculture, transport, waste management, water management, urban development, tourism, and energy. An outcome of wide-ranging consultations and experience-sharing workshops with a diverse range of stakeholders, the report provides an overview of existing tax schemes and subsidies in each economic sector and suggests possible reforms to help make them “greener”.
