Section II: Object
Mapping Objectives in the Field of Environmental Taxation and Budgetary Reform: Internalisation of Environmental External Costs
This preparatory action will build on the 2015 pilot project ‘Capacity Building for Environmental Tax Reform’ (in operation between 2016-2017). It has 2 main objectives:
— to put conclusions of the pilot project in in practice by producing operational guidance to stakeholders to trigger their engagement in the decision making process and to map potential areas where economic instruments, including taxation would be a cost-effective solution to cover implementation gaps in the environmental policy,
— to analyse subsidies that trigger environmentally harmful behaviour by presentation of environmental externalities they cause in certain areas and which measures could bring about their internalisation.
Open call for tender.
Single Service Contract of 20 months with a budget of 750 000 EUR.
Please note that this was previously published in the PIN OJ 2018/S 056-123139 on 21.3.2018 with the title “Preparatory action — Operationalising capacity building for programmatic development and mapping objectives in the field of environmental taxation and budgetary reform”.
