Behavioural Economics and Environmental Incentives

Jason Shogren

No 49, OECD Environment Working Papers from OECD Publishing

Abstract: This review aims to improve our understanding of the implications of the insights from behavioural economics for environmental policy design. The review focuses on the question of incentive design in two broad areas — risk, conflict and cooperation; and mechanism design. A number of lessons for policy design emerge from the literature and are highlighted in the paper. Cet examen vise à améliorer notre compréhension des implications des perspectives de l'économie comportementale pour la conception de la politique environnementale. L'examen porte sur la question de la conception d'incitation dans deux grandes zones: (A) le risque, les conflits et la coopération et (B) la conception du mécanisme. Des leçons émergent de la littérature pour la conception des politiques et sont mis en évidence dans le document.
