The draft covers market based instruments applied to air pollution, for water management/pollution, and for waste, as well as market based instrument concepts and policy recommendations for improvements. An international consultant with expertise in environmental economics will be engaged to provide substantive technical and editorial inputs to the stocktaking report and fill gaps in content. The consultant will work with an international team of experts, who are providing technical inputs on global and regional experiences and applications of MBAEM.
