The choice of instruments for conserving biodiversity

, : The choice of instruments for conserving biodiversity. Discussion Paper School of Business and Economic Studies, University of Leeds ( 96/05): 21 pp.

This paper is concerned with the principles underlying the choice of instruments to implement a strategy for conservation of biodiversity. It argues that the special nature of the biodiversity problem undermines the standard arguments in favour of economic instruments for implementing environmental policies and introduces issues not normally considered in the environmental economics literature.
