Making climate policy efficient: Implementing a model for environmental policy efficiency
2015 (English)In: International Journal of Sustainable Society, ISSN 1756-2538, E-ISSN 1756-2546, Vol. 7, no 1, 1-21 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We propose a framework for studies of efficiency in environmental policies in the form of a conceptual policy cycle. The policy cycle’s six major elements are goal-setting, choice of policy instruments, enforcement, changes in behaviour of public and private agents, effects of policy measures and, finally, evaluation. Through iterating the policy cycle (or parts of it), efficiency in environmental policies can be improved. We apply the policy cycle to climate policies, both mitigation and adaptation, and identify important areas for future research.
