The Paris Agreement on climate change constitutes an important milestone in international climate negotiations. Its key objective is the strengthening of the global response to climate change by transitioning the world to an increasingly green economy. In this book, environmental tax and climate law experts address the various issues surrounding green market transitions. Key chapters examine carbon taxes and systems of implementation, energy subsidies, and support schemes for carbon and energy policies. Using a multitude of international case studies, several contributing authors reflect on the underlying policy dynamics and the constraints of various fiscal measures. In addition, this timely work considers the important issue of smart instrument mixes, going beyond instrument choice to examine how they can work in harmony together. Astute and engaging, this book is a vital companion for students and scholars in environmental law, economics and sustainability. Its practical approach also renders it an excellent guide for policy makers and those involved in fiscal reform and green market transition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Stefan Weishaar brought an excellent group of authors together in this book, reflecting on key developments for the green market transition! Happy to read so many refreshing contributions on carbon taxes, energy subsidies and smart instrument mixes.' -- - Kurt Deketelaere, University of Leuven, Belgium
`The adoption of the Paris Agreement on climate change has made it crystal clear that the attention of scholars and practitioners alike needs to shift to the functioning of policies in support of a low-carbon transition. Offering a timely and important contribution, Weishaar and colleagues have brought together a distinguished and diverse group of authors, who together generate a wealth of ideas for the design of policy instrument mixes in various parts of the world.' -- Harro van Asselt, University of Eastern Finland Law School
Contributions to this timely volume cover some of the most remarkable and important international developments of market-based instruments for environmental policy. Highlights include analytical insights on recent state-level policy proposals in the USA, on innovative methods of linking emissions trading schemes with environmental taxation and on South Africa's carbon tax proposal spanning one third of Africa's emissions.' -- Mikael Skou Andersen, Aarhus University, Denmark
`This excellent volume is yet another contribution to the leading series Critical Issues in Environmental Taxation, which year on year allows experts and policy makers alike to keep abreast of the progress made in developing and implementing tax schemes for environmental protection. Focussing on the impact of the Paris agreement, chapters provide a thorough, data based analysis, of what is being done, how it is working, and what challenges remain. The editors and authors alike should be commended for the output.' -- Javier de Cendra, IE Law School, Spain
`I am convinced that this book will not only help readers to obtain a better understanding of today's most topical environmental tax issues, but will also spark their curiosity, raising new research questions in the field of environmental taxation.' -- Intertax
